Leadership, survival and fun at the Breede River

  • April saw tough work at the Breede River when the students attended a weekend Leadership and Survival Camp. In typical fashion the students took on the various activities on offer with their usual enthusiasm. In their own words “wow, what a weekend “.
  • The tasks set saw the students building their own rafts from scrap material as a survival exercise, rafting for a day down the river, camping out on the river bank, cooking their own food , solving riddles and finally completing the “High Ropes Obstacle Course. Not for the faint hearted!
  • It was particularly pleasing to receive very complimentary feedback from the company who organised the weekend. They said the RAGA students were amongst the most polite, happy, enthusiastic and determined groups they had worked with. Well done to all the RAGA students. You did the Academy proud!
