South Africa
Green and Resource School Launch
Posted by Phumelelani Primary, South Africa on 15 December 2020

As one of the more experienced and senior graduates of the environmental school programs, I was delighted to join the celebrations as a key note speaker at the Phumelelani Primary- Resource Use and Green Schools launch. It was quite a party with moving speeches, delicious food and a very inspiring school tour of the grounds. Much to the envy of neighbors school teachers, we admired their functional tippy taps and thriving permaculture and indigenous garden. I was delighted to see how the vegetable garden had been partitioned into different sections with each class from Grade 1-7 responsible for the maintenance of their section of the garden. I was happy that I could depart with little gift from Water Explorers GSS team -  a stunning 1m x 3m squared indigenous grassland garden in front of the Grade 7 classroom. To the new Grade 7 of 2021, hope you are as enthusiastic and Inspiration as 2020 Grade 7 class. We look forward to next year.
