Life is full of great adventures and Union’s Grade 10s are lucky enough to have embarked on quite a spectacular one this morning!
The learners set off on the 2019 Odyssey bright and early today, Sunday, 15 September, which will see them journey all the way from Nieu-Bethesda to Graaff-Reinet on foot, carrying all they need to be completely self-sufficient in the wilderness on their backs.
We wish all of them well on what can only be discribed as a journey of self-discovery!
To quote Rich Ridgeway, “The best journeys in life are those that answer questions you never thought to ask.”
Day 1 of the Grade 10 learners’ 5-day Odyssey was a relatively easy hike and gave the learners the opportunity to slowly adjust to their heavy backpacks.
The group finished the day in good spirits, eagerly anticipating the next leg of the journey.
