Grade 6

By | ACADEMIC

The Grade 6s of KPS went on a leadership identification excursion like they do every year. While walking from Brenton to Buffalo Bay, the learners were made aware of the pollution on the beach and assisted in a clean-up. Some of the items collected would be used in a sand castle building competition. This sand castle had to depict biodiversity and sustainable living. The learners were divided into teams and had the opportunity to show their leadership potential through many team building activities held on the beach.
