Today the principal of Robin Island talked to us over a wonderful dinner. The Robin Island School consists of grades 1 through 7 with a total of 22 students . The Robin Island School was originally built for children of the island's warden and prison gaurds but was converted into a public school when the prison was closed. Since its conversion, the school has lost a lot of funding and has been forced to lose some extracurricular activities. When functional, the maximum security prison housed Nelson Mandela and several political prisoners. The prison was ideal because it isolated the prisoners and there was very secure (only 1 escape in 350 year history). Robin Island is also home to many bird species and is amongst the most visited sites of Capetown.

Has many bird species.
