Our Bush Buddies environmental club is a vibrant, active and very enthusiastic group. Besides being actively involved in promoting the environment and learning more about it, through lessons and inviting guest speakers to address them, the club also takes part in various excursions each term. A highlight is always the overnight excursion in the fourth term. What a fun way to learn!
At NHP we are proud participants in the ECO-SCHOOL’S programme run by WESSA. We have been a member of this initiative for many years, receiving our Bronze, Silver, Green and Gold flag status’ a few years ago. In 2015 we were awarded our INTERNATIONAL ECO-SCHOOL’S status. A very proud moment for us all.
