WATCH: Christ Church Prep & College learners explore a future career in aviation
“This is Air Traffic Control; Flight CCPS/C 11-12, you are cleared for take-off on runway 2 left. Have a pleasant flight.”
On Saturday, six Grade 11 and 12 pupils, as well as their parents, from Christ Church Preparatory School and College visited Simuflight. Simuflight exposes the world of flight simulation to the young, budding minds and our pupils were introduced to a potential career in aviation.
The morning of fun and excitement was made possible by one of our parents, Kholisile Khumalo, founder and owner of K2 Education Technologies.
K2 Education Technologies (trading as K2Edutech) was founded in 2012 as a dedicated training centre and consulting company. They offer consulting services in the defence, education, aviation and aerospace industries.
K2 Education Technologies has also successfully planned and executed career awareness programmes for the biggest air show on the African continent, The Africa Aerospace and Defence Youth Development Program.
From the YouTube clip below, it is clear how our ecstatic, if somewhat nervous, Christ Church Preparatory School and College pupils were at the opportunity to ‘fly’.
We would like to extend an enormous thank you to both K2 Education Technologies and the fantastic staff at Simuflight for an exciting and eye-opening morning. Christ Church Preparatory School and College looks forward to enjoying more of these educational events in the future.
