Beyond the Classroom

At Hills Road, we offer one of the most extensive enrichment and extra-curricular programmes in the country. Whether you are interested in sport, drama, business, art, music, community service or something completely different, the range of opportunities is enormous. Here are some examples of our students’ experiences.

Mthatha, Eastern Cape, South Africa

In July 2013 a group of 20 Hills Road staff and students travelled to spend a week living and working with our partner students and staff at Ndamase Senior Secondary School in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Our students shared dormitories with their South African peers and immersed themselves in an understanding of their lives and outlook. Friendships were forged and eyes were opened: many described the trip as ‘life-changing’ and ‘unforgettable’ citing in particular their time working in a local orphanage and at the feeder primary school as well as the time spent at the school itself. The second week of the trip was spent travelling down the stunning Wild Coast. Some frontier living under canvas and hiking meant that we experienced the fantastic scenery first hand. Many of us found it hard to come away and we are looking forward to the further strengthening of our partnership links in the years to come.
