At Hartmann House we believe that developing the optimism and resilience students need to successfully navigate life is as important as academic education, and will enhance their engagement with learn
For an all-round development of a child, the Hartmann House curriculum includes sports. A sufficient amount of school time is devoted to sports.
We have a variety of activities that take place during the term. We are keen to keep you informed on up and coming events you maybe interested in.
On Monday the 6th of February we left Hartmann House at 0715hrs for Aberfoyle with all boys on board looking ready and prepared for the experience ahead. The bus trip although long was pleasant as the boys were well behaved. Just before our arrival at Aberfoyle one the boys fell slightly sick with an upset stomach.
Upon our arrival at 1400hrs we were warmly welcomed by Mrs Craigs and the boys were settled into their dormitory before the afternoon activities immediately commenced. Throughout the duration of the week all boys participated in all the activities which included fishing, bird watching, golf, lessons on biodiversity, water canal slide and many others. I believe all the activities were worthwhile and were more than entertaining whilst equally as educational. Behaviour after lights out on all nights was above satisfactory. On our last night, Mrs Craigs awarded Mukudzei Rateiwa with a badge for most contribution to team activities throughout the week.
All in all, the trip was an enjoyable one for both students and staff members. I hope that such an opportunity remains open in the future for those to come.
