This hidden gem provides a unique experience for learners and teachers, with an unparalleled natural environment abounding with fauna, flora and aquatic life. The picturesque and tranquil World Heritage Site lends itself to communion with God and nature, while the activities offered cater for sporting, leadership and academic groups. The St Lucia Retreat and Training Centre provides a wonderful opportunity for your learners to experience a special time of service, fun, sharing and serious reflection.

Leadership groups The setting and the facilities are ideal for your newly elected prefect body to build leadership and teamwork skills. The retreat centre, with its self contained environment and resources makes it easier to facilitate workshops without the common distractions of everyday life. An added bonus is the amount of local activities on offer that allow groups to interact with nature in ways which some may never have had the chance to enjoy before.

Gr 10-12 Community service / Life orientation project  A beautiful setting for learners to develop a deep and genuine relationship with the underprivileged people of the area, teaching skills and assisting with homework.
