We’re turning existing classrooms into ‘living’ interactive learning environments. Working together with the teachers during class time, we’re bringing our holistic and experiential approach to education into the classroom.
Yoga & Lifeskills
Through interactive processes, yoga postures, relaxation exercises, games and songs, our weekly yoga lessons, are equipping children with practical life-skills and knowledge in how to be healthy, confident and resilient.
“The Living Classroom gives me a different way of seeing things. It gives me enough energy to focus on my studies. I love yoga because it makes me happy. It’s a place where I just feel comfortable and relaxed.”
“The yoga is not just for the kids, the yoga is for me too. We look forward to it every week and just to see how Linci loves the kids and how they love her, is truly inspirational” – Ms. Jasson, teacher from Levana Primary
Worm Farming & Gardening
Our Earthchild Facilitators set up a worm farm and container garden in each Living Classroom. We then use them as a practical resource to teach bimonthly lessons about the environment in a way that is fun and engaging.
“You should come everyday to teach us about Zuki the earthworm!”
“My kids are always full of light and excitement when it’s time for worm farming. You’ll hear them cheering and screaming. I also learnt so much, I went from being scared of the work to being a worm champion.” – Ms Dunjani
Our aim is to empower and inspire teachers with the knowledge and tools to extend the reach of our Living Classroom Programme. Through quarterly workshops and monthly yoga classes, we are equipping teachers with facilitation skills and resources they can use with their learners, as well as supporting their own personal development.
“I enjoy using ECP materials. I realized I could learn a thing or two from being in class when you guys are teaching and I enjoyed your workshops as well. I love your guys energy”
“I always feel so motivated after coming from your workshops. I love all your activities but my favourite of all was writing positive things about each other that ended up in a poem. I still have mine.”
