Bateleur College

Seek Higher Things

Extra Mural Activities

The location and set-up of the grounds and existing buildings provide a spacious, relaxed and tree-filled ambience that makes our College unique. There is plenty of room for future development without endangering this environment.  

Extramural activities aimed at promoting our Country ethos will include permaculture techniques and sustainable practices such as composting and vermiculture, planting and harvesting of the vegetable garden, healthy home cooking using fresh garden produce and understanding of the different seasonal vegetables and fruits. Students will be encouraged to plant a vegetable garden at home using seedlings from the school and excess vegetables will be offered to parents at reduced costs.
