Camp 2016

06 July 2016

The 2016 Pro Ed camp was a resounding success.  The learners are to be commended for their attendance, perseverance and enthusiasm.  Being in a different environment away from their usual comforts of home and the boundaries of school, allowed the learners to engage on a different platform. It also encouraged them to be flexible, persevere and most importantly, develop their interdependent skills.  We have seen some otherwise quiet learners taking natural leadership roles. 

Others felt rejuvenated and free, discovering a whole new world of possibilities within themselves and wanting to stay longer!  We have seen a growth in some learners who, while needing much support on previous camps, becoming independent and self-sufficient.  Others felt a sense of freedom, coming into their own and developing a sense of confidence in their own abilities.

This is what makes camping worthwhile and rewarding for the teachers, and affirms our reason for undertaking this mammoth task each year!

Testimonial

"My name is Linda (*). I am 19, have been to three schools and finished matric with a university entrance. I am studying dance, theatre and drama, do modern, tap, ballet, hip hop, jazz and contemporary dance, play violin and piano and did karate. What people don’t know is that I am dyslexic and have ADHD, and my second school was Pro Ed. I also have an extremely short attention span and limited memory. Looking back on my schooling being at Pro Ed was the best use of my time and the best investment my parents could have made for my future."
