Twenty-one years ago, the school developed a four-day residential programme, entitled “Rainbow Camp,” for Grade 11 students (ages 16 – 17).

The camp-based workshops have enhanced learning as students’ learning stretches beyond the academic to the intra- and interpersonal spheres of life.

Learning more about themselves, their ideologies and biases, as well as about others has expanded their worldview and encouraged open-mindedness, tolerance, acceptance, peace-building and celebration of diversity.

The programme’s content focuses on personal growth and development within the context of a multi-cultural and diverse society, and in particular in our South African society which was fractured by apartheid and which continues to carry the damage in its fabric.

A critical focus of the programme is anti-racism education and the term “Rainbow Camp” reflects the desire to embrace the diversity of our South African Rainbow Nation.
