UNITE(ING) SPIRIT WITH ADVENTURE

UNITE(ING) SPIRIT WITH ADVENTURE

The crisp autumn air did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the University Tuition for Engineers (UNITE) programme learners who participated in the recent Spirit of Adventure activities on 13 April at the Howard College soccer grounds.

Experiential learning, in which teamwork, creative problem-solving, leadership and planning are emphasised, forms an integral part of UNITE’s ethos of holistic education. Students’ strategic thinking and teamwork abilities were tested with tug-o-war, “mind munching” creative problem-solving and various physically-demanding challenges.

The Spirit of Adventure, which is Shongweni-based and runs bespoke mobile youth development programmes, enjoys a long and beneficial working relationship with the UNITE programme.
