Research shows that studying in a green environment brings significant benefits to children’s intellectual and emotional development.
We aspire to live an environmentally mindful life with a low carbon footprint. We want to teach children as well as the community we live in that showing respect for our environment enhances the quality of our lives.
We believe that children should not be afraid of the elements, but intrigued and inspired by them. By relying on natural ventilation instead of air conditioning, having an environment that encourages barefoot walking and getting your hands dirty, our children learn how they can live in harmony with nature, and how that helps to develop strong bodies and minds and build immunity.
The campus design, by its layout and non-reliance on unnecessary resources or technologies, makes the school simple to use and easy to maintain. Built-in eco-friendly features and systems, such as waste water processing and a biogas plant enable us to teach by example how waste can be recycled for new use.
Fruit trees and vegetable gardens throughout the campus as well as our very own mini-rice plots deliver hands-on experience in how to grow food without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
