Johannesburg school runs a Clean-up for a sustainable future campaign
Updated: Aug 5, 2022
In celebration of Mandela Month, Heavenly Culture World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL) and the Chief Albert Luthuli Primary School in Johannesburg, South Africa hosted a park clean-up under the theme “Clean-up for a sustainable future” on Saturday, 23 July 2022.
The event aimed to bring together the community to serve and take care of their shared park, raise environmental awareness, and to encourage the preservation of the environment. In attendance were forty primary school learners, and twenty HWPL volunteers.
Chief Luthuli Primary School is one of the peace schools that have participated in HWPL’s Peace Education programme which aims to cultivate a culture of peace within learners so that they become leaders who create global harmony and achieve peace. The three core values of HWPL’s Peace Education are: sanctity of life, loyalty, filial piety, co-existence, and sustainability.
Ms. Maphanga, the Head of Department of Chief Luthuli Primary School said, “The program is good for our learners and youth within the school surrounding because it promotes independent thinkers and learners to be able to manage their behavior and be positive about life.”
The principal also added that it is important to teach learners to care for their environment and allow them to reside in a clean environment that is conducive and hygienic.
HWPL regularly hosts free peace education workshops to introduce the 12 units of the peace education curriculum. Over the past two years, HWPL has made efforts to develop peace education curriculum by receiving advice from the ministries of education and teachers from each country. In all classes, teachers can develop their own lesson plans or tools freely according to the level and environment of each country and community using the standard curriculum. To date, 103 schools in Southern Africa have signed MoUs with HWPL to implement peace education in their schools.
