GEORGE NEWS - Glenwood House School concluded their inaugural year as a Landmark "Green School". The education project initiated by the conservation NPO, Landmark Foundation, teaches students about biodiversity and habitat conservation, the ethical treatment of wildlife and sustainable living. Glenwood students took on a school-wide recycling project, as well as monitoring local leopard populations and maintaining their Wetland and Biomes Project.
Education officer Monica Vaccaro, who started the "Green Clubs" projects, says, "We give special attention to making the children feel they can help and we give them practical ways to do this - from spending time in nature, to food gardens at schools, waste management and even undertaking research themselves."
Teacher Clare van Rensburg says they look forward to working with Landmark in 2020.
"Our students are becoming increasingly aware of threats to the environment and wish to work towards protecting our planet."
