At around 9:15 on Tuesday, September the 10th the Grade Eleven Geography learners accompanied by the Geography teachers departed to Paarl. The objective of the outing was to learn about the geomorphology of Paarl and surrounding area and bring to life the inanimate words of our textbook.

The Taal Monument marked the start of what we believed to be a short and non-strenuous hike to get closer to Paarl Rock. When we eventually reached the top, after a rather steep climb, for most of us the sense of achievement outweighed the suffering experienced on the way up. The view of both Paarl Rock and the Fold Mountains ahead was incredibly impressive. Being closer to the massive natural landform of which most has yet to be exposed made many of us appreciate it so much more.

We then ventured back down to the Taal Monument where we were able to have something to eat and relax before heading back to school. The size of this man made structure left an equally significant impression on us.
