A huge vote of thanks to the friendly and professional crew of Ama Zwing Zwing Zip Line Tour for a fantastic outing. Our learners and staff had a fabulous time soaring through the air above the tree tops and appreciated the peaceful break from school under the shady trees in the pristine surrounds, whilst waiting for their peers.
Today as part of our Life Orientation syllabus, our senior learners had a talk on Alcohol and Drug Awareness presented by the Mudita Cara Primary Addiction Treatment Centre in Kalkheuvel.
We wish to thank Marco and Sthembi for a very informative, candid and heartfelt talk. It resonated well with the learners as they were engaged and prepared to participate in the discussion, we feel that it provided our learners some valuable information around the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
Wishes to congratulate both the learners and their teachers on their excellent results. In May/June 2021, these learners wrote external internationally recognised examinations as private candidates, the papers are set up and marked at the University of Cambridge. This is a true international benchmark and we could not be prouder of their achievement.

Someone else out and about enjoying the sunshine. You’ve got to love our traffic❤️ all the more reason to drive slowly when entering the grounds, you never know what you’ll miss if you just flash past.
Our little ones taking full advantage of the sunshine this morning.
Thank you to Glen Afric Country Lodge and staff, the transformation is astounding! We all love what you've done, as do the zebra!
Everyone at Glen Afric Country Lodge was very busy over the December holidays💪
Great things are happening at school during the holidays😊
How lovely it is to hear the lions roar each morning while we teach. So very blessed.
Today, our EM & Geography students head out on an adventure to find a locally sourced water spring on the Glen Afric Farm.
Pictured down below, Carmen is taking a big sip of water directly from the spring. 💧
It comes with great pleasure to announce that 4 of our students have made the North West Bojanala team for SANESA Finals this year.🥳
Hard work & dedication has definitely payed off. We would like to congratulate the following riders on this outstanding achievement:
•Tayla Belle Gray on Dageraad Lakoda Rayne
•Tameryn Shaw on Oakhill Applause & Legacy’s Firefly.
•Chanté Thiele on Eintracht Bugsie Mallone
•Letricia Judith Kowane on Ice Dancer.
Congratulations girls, & good luck for finals. We are cheering for you all. 🥳
A very emotional goodbye to Trevor Gray. I started this school for Trevor, Mason and Tibby. 7 years later, the boys start new lives as young adults. Thank you to everyone that has joined us on this journey!
Biology in action!
World Environment Day!
Sanesa Q2. Well done to all our riders and their very special horses! Lettie and Ice Dancer, Christina Macleod and Belly Dancer, Chantè and Bugsy, Tammy with Legacy and Apple and Tayla and Dieselle!

So proud of all of you! Love you all - always and forever!
Thank you for being such an incredible group. It has been a phenomenal journey!
May your troubles be less and your blessing be more. May nothing but happiness come through your door.
The Detroit Zoological Society has a long history of saving birds around the world. Learn about our current scientific fieldwork to preserve penguins in the Falkland Islands and Antarctica, Great Lakes piping plovers in northern Michigan and flamingos and vultures in South Africa.
We are very excited to share our invitation for the 2019 VulPro Fundraising Gala! It is bound to be a beautiful evening, all focused on appreciating the magnificence of Vultures.
We would love for you to join us!

Yesterday our IGCSE Biology students conducted an experiment to learn more about diffusion of substances through a semi-permeable membrane.
The students had to take the visking tubing they were provided and fill it with a starch solution that they made themselves. As the visking tubing is semi-permeable, the iodine particles moved from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration, down a concentration gradient (into the visking tubing)
After 10 minutes, the starch solution in the visking tubing turned black as shown in the video below.👇
Thank you to Hartbeespoort Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) who visited Glen Afric Learning Centre today and showed the GrR-8's and the Foundation kids the inside of an ambulance, the equipment they use in a emergency and also taught them important safety facts.
Wow. One of our IGCSE Core students is Queen of Doodles
What a fun filled Friday! ☀️
Thanks to Teacher Annelien, the primary school was surprised with some delicious watermelon at second break to end off a busy week. 🍉🍉
A BIG THANK YOU to the visiting vet Dr Sarah from Detroit zoo in USA and Taylor a zookeeper from Atlanta for their time and dedication to the Flamingo Project.
Wow, our AS Marine Science and AS Biology students had the experience of a lifetime at Vulpro today.
Our students had the opportunity to work side by side with a Zoo veterinarian from Detroit, USA. 🇺🇸
As a part of their syllabus, the students collected vital information about the cape vultures, this included:
-BCS (body condition score)
This information will now be analyzed and processed by VulPro
On behalf of all the students, we would like to thank Kerri Wolter (& the Vulpro team) for allowing us to be apart of this experience, to Dr. Sarah for including every single one of us and educating us on how you examine vultures, and lastly to Jacqui & Julie for transporting us to and from Vulpro. ⛰
🏆 SPORTING ACHIEVEMENTS 🏆
We had three students who were out and about this previous weekend - Jonathan Brooker, Tameryn Shaw & Marcel Zuur.
25/01: Tameryn Shaw competed at the “Pretoria Indoor Archery Championship” at Ultimate Aim Sports Arena. 🏹
She competed in the ‘Young-Adult Female Freestyle Unlimited’ category where she obtained a gold medal 🥇
26/01: Jonathan Brooker competed at the “EWXC Endurance Race”. Jonathan started off at number 242 out of the 400 riders.
By his 2nd lap, he was sitting at 15th place but due to an unfortunate fall, his radiator was compromised which ended his race. ⛰
26-27/01: Marcel Zuur competed at an IP gala in Bloemfontein & in a gala in Benoni. Keep up the good work Marcel!! 🏊🏼♂️
Wow, congratulations guys. We are incredibly proud of your achievements. 🏆
With the expectation of the poor flamingo chicks arriving tomorrow, our very own volunteers head off to transform old stables into flamingo enclosures.
Without the help of Robbie, Julie, Wesley, Trevor, William & Jacqui the flamingo chicks wouldn’t have anywhere to go.
Well done guys, we are extremely grateful for your contribution today. 🙏🏼

Good evening everyone,
As you may be aware, we are dealing with a flamingo crisis! ❌
Kerri, the founder of Vulpro, is desperately searching for generous volunteers to assist the poor flamingo chicks who are in critical need of our help.

Any financial contributions would also be highly appreciated. The donated money will be used to buy medical supplies that may be needed by voluntary vets.
Lets make a REAL difference and help out these poor chicks that are in desperate need of GALC’s help. 🙏🏼

We offer an alternative learning experience that allows children to develop to their full potential.
GALC is a registered independent school (DOE EMIS No: 600105364 and 600105367) that offers full time tuition, as well as supplementary tuition for home schooled children.
Respect and responsibility are fundamental to our ethos.
Classes are small to ensure individual attention is paid to each student. Group work is encouraged to build problem solving and people skills.
Although we are not specifically a special needs facility, we do accommodate children with learning difficulties.
We have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying. Students of all ages interact and play together. Older students often guide and assist the younger ones in various activities.
Conservation of our natural heritage forms the corner stone of our educational program. Children will grow up with the opportunity of interacting with Africa’s wildlife. Primary school students spend an hour each week doing Bush Craft. During Bush Craft they learn about the animals and plants around us, tracking and survival skills, conservation and anti-poaching, and spend time interacting with the animals on the farm. All students participate in practical classes both in the science and biology lab as well as in the field.
We believe strongly that the future lies in the hands of our children and it is our responsibility to equip them with the values, skills and knowledge to embrace the challenges facing our society and environment.
