We are very proud that Glenwood House School has achieved Diamond Decade Silver Eco-School status. In recognition of our dedicated Environmental Society and our decade-long pursuit of quality environmental education we have been awarded Diamond Decade Silver Status.
In 2013 the Glenwood House Environmental Society scooped the ‘National Award for a Group’ from the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa. During 2014 Glenwood House School will focus on ‘Nature and Biodiversity’ and encourage new learners and teachers to get involved in the planning and learning that takes place as part of our school wide commitment to Eco-Schools.
We believe that everyone should be involved if we want to make a difference. Our programmes are designed to suit all the age groups in the school.
Current programmes include our wetland work, our recycling programme as well as the Leopard Project, Arbour Day tree planting, beach clean ups, penguin sanctuary support, rhino conservation and life science fieldwork excursions. Please see the video (Enviro Video Diamond Decade) made by learners Beltain Jordaan and Julius Stopforth that was commended by Western Cape Eco-Schools Coordinator, Victoria Burnett, outlining the environmental work done in the school over the last number of years.
