Learning Geography

Attending a school situated in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe has some advantages when it comes to studying Geography:

a) Mountains – we are on one, at 2200m altitude, in the Eastern Zimbabwe montane forest-grassland ecoregion.

b) Rivers and springs – we have them around us – with erosion, meanders and waterfalls to go and see.

c) Weather –  sometimes we are literally ‘in’ the weather and surrounded by cloud – or even above the clouds. We have rainy weather from Mozambique meeting warmer weather from Zimbabwe right in front of us.

d) Biomes – we are Alpine with a touch of frost in the winter mornings. 25 km away it us much hotter and drier with different plants and animals. Below us is the Nyanga National Park.
