One highlight of this stimulating course will be the construction of a natural, self-cleaning swimming pool requiring no chlorine or other chemicals to clean it. Students will construct the pool on site, utilising knowledge and skills gained during the course. The course will run in February, with classes finishing at 3pm daily allowing students time to have fun and visit natural attractions in the area: bird sanctuary, waterfalls, the beach, caves etc.
