As many of you know, 12 TSiBA Alumni members have attended a weekend camp in the Grootwinterhoek Mountains in November 2014 as part of a partnership between TSiBA Alumni and Educo.

The partnership allows for TSiBA Alumni to visit the mountains (on selected dates) and make use of the Mpepho house that has been adopted. The opportunity arose due to the Sihambela Phambili Programme by Educo Africa.

The visit back to Grootwinterhoek has been the 1st in many years for some of the Alumni, and provided an opportunity to reflect back to our time as students and our introduction to the Grootwinterhoek Mountains, to the ROP (Rights of Passage) in our final year before embarking on our individual journeys post-Graduation.

The weekend has in all been an amazing one with opportunities for some hiking and abseiling. Many alumni members do not often get the time to spend time together so this was a good opportunity to catch-up on each other’s lives and careers, but also, connecting with people who have walked your path through your TSiBA journey with you.

The date for 2015 has not yet been finalised but we are looking at 6-8 November 2015 for 24 Alumni Members. An update of this will be provided throughout the year and none of the previous attendees of November 2014 will attend to allow an opportunity for all other interested to go and enjoy a common place amongst TSiBA Alumni.

There is also an opportunity for TSiBA Alumni to visit the house on their own (i.e. for hiking, weekend away) which still need to be finalised with Educo.
