Priory City Tour 2014

Every year I take the St Dominic Priory grade 6 classes on a tour of Port Elizabeth and have so much fun teaching them a little more about the city’s history.  Yesterday we headed out in the howling wind but didn’t allow the weather gods to put us off.  Four hours later we had gone for a walk through St Georges Park, visited Fort Frederick, climbed the 204 steps up (and back down) the Campanile, quietly made our way around the Public Library, ascended the Donkin Lighthouse and made a stop at the Sacramento cannon in Schoenmakerskop.  Its really a fun and practical way to teach the kids the history while not boring them classroom style.  Its always a pleasure taking them out as the group’s discipline is impeccable year after year.  Here the teachers are getting them lined in front of Fort Frederick for a group photo.
