Green school coming to Paarl-Franschhoek valley
The first-ever international Green School in South Africa is set to open in January 2021 in the Paarl-Franschhoek valley.
The school will offer pre-school and grades one to eight when it first opens.
It will then grow annually as each cohort advances to become a school that educates up to grade 12.
Co-founder Alba Brandt says the school will incorporate sustainability in everything it does.
Brandt says that the idea of the school is to prepare young children to be innovative individuals for the future needs of the world.
The approach to teaching will be experiential and individual expression will be encouraged, she explains.
