Participants from Sifunda Kunye partner schools, Toise SSS, St Matthews High School, and Hendrik Kanise Combined School took part in a 48 km hike during this weekend. Participants were qualifying for their silver in The Presidents Awards level.
During our arrival at camp it was raining but we were determined to complete our camp and required km to qualify for our silver. We hiked for 4km during the night walk, the following morning we hiked along the beach for 40 km and on the 3 day we hiked for 6 km. This was a challenging hike, it rained the entire 3 days and 2 nights, all together it rained 124 mm during our camp, we were wet, tired but determined. We had to work together in teams to survive the weekend. It took a lot of determination, teamwork, motivation and courage but we concurred and completed what we aimed to achieve.
Thank you to Sifunda Kunye for organizing this camp and for supporting us step by step through this journey.
