During the month of March the Sports Coordinators organised recreational hikes for the following College of Cape Town campuses:
Gardens & Crawford – Friday, 2 March
City & Guguletu – Friday, 9 March
Pinelands & Athlone – Friday, 16 March
The location of the hike was Newlands Forest. It was a fairly moderate route and it took approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete. A total of 56 students participated and each group completed the entire route. The fact that each group completed the entire route was really extraordinary, and it was extremely inspiring to see students encourage one another throughout the hike to complete the route as a group.
“The response we got from the students was positive with most of them wanting it to happen regularly. We plan to organize more recreational activities which positively contribute to the enhancement of the students’ experience and encourage student engagement,” said Kurt Lenders, who is one of the Sports Coordinators.
