Africa Tour for Prep Year Students
A formative tour for young adults to become more independent and learn a great deal of responsibility.
Our Prep Year students and outside students that enrol for the Shark Life Conservation Course get the option to go on a shark dive trip to Aliwal Shoal just south of Durban.
Aliwal Shoal has diverse marine life including large predators and is popular as a recreational scuba diving destination. The Shoal is known especially for its abundance of Grey nurse sharks (known locally as ragged tooth sharks or "raggies").
After doing their Open Water Certification, our students have the option of going on a Scuba Dive trip to Sodwana Bay. Here's a short video of what to expect.
Sodwana Bay is located on the east coast of South Africa, in one of the most unique and unspoiled parts of the world.

We decided to send our daughter, Mari van Wyk to the prep year as she was not excactly sure what she want to do after finishing matric. We want her to become aware of how things work in the real world out there in a safe enviroment.
We believe here at Just Life Skills, she will get perspective about her own future and she will find herself and strecth her own ablities.
She is now learning working methods, time management and
As a gap year student at Just Life Skills, she gets the chance to work with a lot of young people and that also means a lot of adventure most of the time.
She is also experiencing a wide field of opertunities that is laying a basis to work from as she enters the adult world after this 1 year.
We thank Marius Wolfaart and the team for this great opportunity, and we believe Mari will gain a lot, attending this year with Just Life Skills.
Ek as 'n voorbereidings jaar student van Just Africa Life Skills, kan eerste hands getuig hoe die groep se fasiliteerders soveel kinders se lewens aanraak. Die verskeie skole in die Helderberg area en die individu is so bevooreg om met JALS te kan werk.
Die afgelope maand het ek soveel van myself en die mense rondom my geleer. Ek sien uit om die res van die jaar verder te groei en te kan leer !!
