Students hike Cape to Cape

Students from Yallingup Steiner School were blown away by their recent two-day camp and hike on the Cape to Cape Track! The kids from Class 4 hiked from Cape Naturaliste to Canal Rocks with our “king of the kids”, schools coordinator and Track guide Andrew Haskell.

Wildlife aplenty on Margaret River walk

The students were captivated by a white-bellied sea eagle hovering near them. A legless lizard that looked like very much like a snake. And simply by the incredible landscape they hiked. Andrew says he was “so impressed by their knowledge of flora and their perseverance on the Track”.

“They did so well to cover the 14 kilometres from Cape Nat to Yallingup on the first day!” he says. “A big shout out to Rae-lee Searle, their class teacher, for guiding these young ones to form strong relationships with our diverse and precious country. We look forward to out next adventure!”

Awareness of the ground beneath our feet

Ms Searle said the experience was a life-changing one for many of the students. “Thank you, Cape to Cape Explorer Tours, for helping us find our footing by bringing awareness to the ground beneath our feet,” she says. “And thank you to Andrew. You understood our needs explicitly. Your warm and gentle manner created comfort and confidence. Meanwhile, your thoughtful and inquisitive nature moulded the mood.  And your playful and sincere spirit encouraged a striving in us to go out and to see more.”
