As tradition dictates, 30 Agri-Merensky learners set off on another Nampo adventure in Bothaville. 15 to 17 May was a highlight on many aspiring farming enthusiasts’ calendar. This popular outing is set aside for grade 9 to 11 learners each year.

On 16 May, a full day was spent at Nampo Park where the learners visited practical demonstrations of high-tech farming equipment, witnessed new technology in action and also attended an auction. A valuable experience was the attendance of a showmanship demonstration.

Before heading home, the group had the privilege of a hands-on tour through the world renowned Onderstepoort Veterinary Academic Hospital.
