Cycle Challenge 2022
As a Round Square member school, the St George's annual Cycle Challenge is an activity that engages our students, accompanied by teachers, in exploring the great outdoors by living out one of the Round Square IDEALS - ADVENTURE. Here students complete an average of 500 km in the Cycle Challenge, which takes them across Namibia and neighbouring countries.
In the previous years before Covid, the Cycle Challenge would go through Botswana, to Victoria Falls and back down through the Zambezi region (previously known as the Caprivi Strip). However, due to Covid, the Challenge hasn’t happened for the last two years. This year, we have decided to keep it in the country due to the strict border crossing requirements and risks. We will be cycling over 12 days from Windhoek to Luderitz via Sossusvlei using the dirt roads.
The group will leave on Thursday, 16 June.

Anything but a schoolbag
On Friday, 3 June 2022, the Prep students showed off their creativity by bringing anything but schoolbags to school. The rules were that they could attend school carrying everything they needed in anything but a regular bag.
The limit did not exist when they accepted the challenge. Bread bins, cereal boxes, dustbins, guitar cases, puzzle boxes and even pressure cookers were some of the carriers creating fun and wacky alternatives to schoolbags.
St George's Pre-Primary and Prep School aims to have happy children who love coming to school. We start our students down a road to academic success, self-worth, and confidence in a holistic, safe and secure environment.
