Waterford Kamhlaba’s Nyatsela 21-Day Walk

Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA-Nyatsela Walk is part of an exciting new wave in education which addresses the situation of 21st century children and equips them with vital personal, social and thinking skills enabling them to make the world a better place. Nyatsela is a SiSwati word meaning ‘to make a footprint’. Nyatsela will be a 21-Day walk for Form 3 students (14-15 years old); 80 students accompanied and supervised by 20 adults; divided into 6 groups. The walk will be held every year, starting in June 2019 and will include staying in campsites, schools, homesteads, etc. The Nyatsela Walk will become a key element to education at Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA. The walk will contribute to:

  • The development of resilience and resourcefulness
  • The development of autonomy and responsibility
  • The cultivation of perseverance
  • Increasing tolerance, acceptance, getting to know others
  • Getting to know one’s self
  • Getting to know eSwatini – its people, culture, geography, flora and fauna
  • Respond to needs within the communities
  • Developing and expressing respect for the environment

You can read more about Nyatsela by having a look at the Nyatsela brochure or flyer.
