Teach for ESD Regional Workshops

Towards the end of the 1st school term, our Teach for ESD participating teachers gathered together for a regional workshop. It was an excellent opportunity to share experiences, learn additional topics and support teachers to reflect on their approach to Education for Sustainable Development. Teachers from all 14 regions met at 5 different venues spanning from NaDEET Centre in the south to Katima Mulilo in the Northeast.

Dune sledding!

Dune boarding is one of the highlights for children during the programme. Once the temperatures cool down, the sand is a great surface to slide down.



One of our regular schools, Amazing Kids Academy, had the opportunity to try out our new dune board design made ourselves from a broken plastic tank.
