WBHS Grade 10 Challenge – Cederberg Here We Come!

Sunday 19 November 2017: the early morning promise of a hot Cape Town day, and even hotter days ahead in the Cederberg, did little to melt the excitement as the Grade 10 Group A readied to depart on the annual twelve-day Wynberg Grade 10 Challenge.

The Challenge is a learning experience emphasizing choices and decision making, something each boy must make on his own.  It is a test of resolve and personal friendships, of spirituality and discovery of self, of social and environmental responsibility.

This year the Grade 10s have been split into two groups, with Group B departing on the morning of Tuesday 21 November. Each group will break into 4 smaller teams on arrival to head out with WBHS Staff and local guides. Eight days of hiking through the mountains carrying their provisions on their backs and sleeping under the stars await them, followed by providing assistance to a community project and Cape Nature.

Wynberg’s Mr Anthony Sparrow, leader of the Challenge:

“This is an expedition: the boys face days of solid hiking in the mountains, cooking for themselves (always interesting!), sleeping without tents under the stars with no bathrooms nor hot water – all while having absolutely no electronic device around them other than a camera to take pictures.
