This school is so inspiring that it makes students want to achieve their dreams.
In South Africa, Alba Brandt is working to establish the country’s first “green school.” The school is based on a similar model to one in Bali, Indonesia that Brandt’s family became familiar with on a six-month trip. Brandt and her husband co-founded the school with the hope of raising a new generation of ecologically conscious citizens.
The Green School curriculum is centered on joy and wonder, with the goal of teaching children, families, and teachers how to live sustainably on this world. The teaching style at the school is designed to promote focus and engagement, with breaks built in and a focus on open communication between students and faculty.
The school’s founders are hopeful that their project will inspire other similar initiatives.
