“This would have been our 20th Adventure Week at Cannons Creek.”
– Mike Van Haght, principal at Cannons Creek High School

Today, Grade 7, 8, 10 and 12 pupils arrived at school, ready for Adventure Week 2020 (Grade 9 and Grade 11 pupils had already left in the days prior to Monday).

Bags had been packed and weighed the day before; hiking boots had been ‘walked in’ around the school campus for the past few weeks; buses and campsites had been booked and paid for almost a year in advance and parents had been counting the rands to ensure camp fees were paid.

But this morning, we woke up to a different South Africa… a South Africa where, no matter how beneficial a trip like this could be, it was not to be this year.

Listen as Wendy Joubert interviews Mike van Haght about the cancellation of Adventure Week this year – the motivation and some of the implications for us as a school community moving forward.
