Prep and High School pupils celebrated Epworth’s Double Decade Gold award, which recognises the school for being a member of the WESSA Eco-Schools’ programme for 14 years. The programme is a valuable curriculum framework for schools to work toward sustainable development goals. Launched in South Africa in 2003, the programme has grown to include over 1000 schools. Epworth is one of only three schools in South Africa to have celebrated 14 years of sustained effort and action. Sixty-three countries are part of the programme with over 30 000 schools participating.
