Before the trip the learners must research the topic. They will also bring along a cultural/traditional/customary attire/costume or dress of another culture. They must be able to explain when it was worn, by whom and why is it important to them or their community.
The Spring School will begin on the 28th September  and run until the  6th October 2012. The Spring School will be attended by students from all provinces of South Africa, Namibia, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo and Zimbabwe. The Mobile Museum co-ordinator Ms Nozipho Madinda would like to thank Robben Island Museum for this opportunity.
