Culture Subjects

South Africa - Cape Town 

 

The trip will have a multifaceted focus, where we will work with South African culture, nature and cooperate with an international school in Cape Town. Under these topics we will of course work on Apartheid, Nelson Mandela and South African social issues.

 

The trip

The preparation for the profile subject involves independent projects that we can use in the presentation of Ranum and Denmark at the schools we visit. We will of course also work on the country's culture, political history, and examine how life is lived in South Africa today.

In class and on the trip, we focus on the following UN SDGs: eradicate poverty, reduce inequality, decent jobs and economic growth, peace, justice and strong institutions.

  • Robben Island
  • District Six Museum
  • Tour of Langa Township
  • Visiting a School
  • Walk up Table Mountain
  • Bolder Beach
  • South African National Gallery
  • St. George's Cathedral
  • Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point
  • SOS Children's Village
  • The Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock
  • The Holocaust Museum
  • Opportunity for a safari

 

Safety

There is little risk of terrorist attacks in South Africa, including attacks against tourists and other travellers.

Security around the most common tourist attractions is relatively high, and the vast majority of Danish travellers have a trouble-free stay in the country. However, travellers to South Africa should exercise caution due to the risk of violent crime, including armed robberies, assaults, carjackings and thefts.

  1. Before the trip, we make it clear that students must never walk alone. All activities take place in groups. You are not allowed to walk alone in the area. All walks are done together or in small groups at selected sites (e.g. Waterfront).
  2. Before the trip we have provided each student with the address and phone number of the hotel. They also have Matt's and Mathilde's phone numbers.
  3. On tours around Cape Town, there is always a teacher who leads and a teacher who trails.
  4. If the pupil is absent, we call their mobile.
  5. We wait for 2 hours in case the student has taken the wrong train or bus and needs to find his way back to the group. If the pupil does not arrive between 2-3 hours after we have contacted them, we call the parents.
  6. In case the student is missing for more than 3 hours, we will contact the police.
  7. After 8pm we will contact the police in any case.

All school rules also apply on the trip. If a breach of these rules is suspected, we will deal with the situation. In case of more serious violations (e.g. consumption of alcohol or drugs) we will, if possible, expel the student. All costs for this are the responsibility of the parents.

 

Demands

It is important that students are curious to experience a very different culture and meet young people from another culture and form new communities. Therefore, the pre-trip work will also focus on the social community of the team, so that students learn to take responsibility for each other and engage in the trip as a common project.

Pupils are expected to arrive prepared and engaged for cultural studies lessons. Before and after the trip, there will be parent days where students are expected to make presentations.
