THE Woods Preparatory School andamp; College had a busy September. It started by celebrating Arbor Day, planting three types of aloe and a Mackaya bella plant, donated by Ryder Nash. Principal GV Naidoo explained to pupils how to properly take care of plants.

During the month, the Grade 12 life sciences classes took a trip to the Red Desert near Umtamvuna River, which is the smallest desert in the world caused by wind erosion. This formed part of the curriculum. Afterwards they took a ferry up the Umtamvuna River and saw mullet­ jumping out of the water, eagles­, toucans, Egyptian geese, lichens­ on trees and the beautiful unpolluted river. - Supplied
