TOURS

Glenstantia Primary School prioritizes the holistic development of our learners by expanding learning beyond the confines of the classroom. Organizing educational overnight tours and day trips for learners in Grades 3 to 7 serves to complement and enhance the curriculum while encouraging social interaction among peers in environments away from the school premises.

These overnight tours are voluntary and self-funded. Parents are informed well in advance and are given ample notice to prepare financially.

The overnight tours range from 2 nights for Grade 3, 3 nights for Grade 4 and 4 nights for Grades 5 to 7. These tours are not only an extension of the classroom but is also an excellent opportunity for learners to interact with their peers away from school. The teachers also have an opportunity to connect with the learners in a relaxed environment.

Moreover, the inclusion of 2-3 educational day trips per year for learners from Grades R to 7, covered by school fees, further enriches their learning journey. These excursions offer practical, hands-on learning opportunities that complement classroom teachings.

In summary, Glenstantia Primary School’s commitment to experiential learning extends beyond academic enrichment to foster personal and social growth in our learners.
