Misty Meadows School is a pre- and primary school situated in the Dargle Valley, KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, South Africa. It is committed to creating an organic learning environment to support children’s self-directed learning. The school is not prescriptive about exactly what and how children learn: children remain at the centre of their own learning journeys in ways that make sense to them. It focuses on providing them with access to a rich diversity of catalysts, resources, perspectives, experiences, support, guidance, encouragement and opportunities for collaboration and learning. The school creates an enabling learning ecosystem for high quality learning.
Misty Meadows is committed to enabling children from all backgrounds to participate in school life. The Zoe Trust supports two children, Sisi and Nthambi, who attend Misty Meadows school. They are both from disadvantaged but loving homes and are thriving in this child-led and engaging environment.
In May 2017 we launched a new project to install an internet connection at Misty Meadows school so that the children can access online learning materials. The school has revamped an old farm house ready for the computer and internet line. This project opens up a whole world of teaching and learning for all the children at the school but especially the children from disadvantaged homes who don’t have access to electricity. We are happy to have done this in partnership with the Geeks without Frontiers and with our sponsor Kirsty and her wedding guests.
