On Saturday the 29 of August 2015, forty one Sunday School children from the Diocese of False Bay churches’ St Peter’s Khayelitsha, St Michael Harare, and St Francis Mandela Park joined Green Anglican’s and Pride of Table Mountain on a hike up to the always alluring Table Mountain.
Nature plays an important role in our lives and the young people had an opportunity to learn about plants, trees (indigenous one’s only found in the Western Cape e.g. Silver Tree). They were divided into two learning groups.
Throughout the trip the hiking guides from Pride of Table Mountain were supportive, and informative, teaching about the value of nature and how it can better connect with people. When they got on top of the mountain they could see an overview of Cape Town, beauty that led to them to commit not to pollute moving forward. A great experience for children, more especially after the hike they had time to meditate at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens listening to beautiful sounds of streams and birds. We are grateful to Pride of Table Mountain for sponsoring the trip, an enlightening adventure for the Sunday School of the Anglican Church.
