Connecting with the land

Our school population is 98% Indigenous and we use traditional teachings along side our actions. An important part of Indigenous learning is that our efforts benefit our community, which has high levels of poverty and food insecurity.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
