Caves, mountains and adventure for Wembley pupils
Forty Wembley High School pupils, six teachers, and two leopard cousin mascots toured the Eastern Cape last week before the cold front struck.
Their tour included visiting the Cango Caves and Ostrich Farm in Oudtshoorn and driving to the Meiringspoort Waterfall, well hidden in a deep ravine between the Swartberg and Outeniqua Mountains, where legend has it a mermaid resides. The tour then headed to the Point of Origin Caves and a seal boat trip in Mossel Bay. The exciting week ended in Sedgefield, with a visit to the Knysna Oyster Festival and a trip to see the Knysna Heads.
The tour was not without some adventure.
Seven brave pupils bungee jumped at Storms River – the highest commercial bungee jump site in the world. Well done to all the boys who jumped and to Yajna Aheer the only girl who braved it.
Yajna has made Wembley history, by not only being the first girl to jump, but also creating the most engagement from her live bungee video on Facebook. She continued her adventurous streak by diving with sharks. This time only one boy joined her.
These Wembley scholars had a wonderful journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
