The grade 9 Social Sciences outing took place on 28 March and was an extremely thought-provoking and profoundly moving day. It started off at the District Six Museum where we went to listen to stories from people who were forcibly removed from District Six. The experience moves beyond any static display and is aimed at generating empathetic understanding. The activities designed for this purpose promoted  an even deeper understanding of what it must have been like for this community. All in all, the value of experiences like these are invaluable.

We then went off to the Castle to have some lunch,  look around and learn some more facts about World War I . Again, we were offered perspectives which were both new and thought-provoking. It was an extraordinarily interesting day.
