Class time at Southern Cross School in South Africa is an unusual scene. Teachers and pupils are not shut inside classrooms. Instead, they walk through the grass and bush, or sit in the shade of trees, and join serious discussions.
The school has the same syllabus that is set for the country’s schools by the educational authorities, but the teaching methods are totally different. Southern Cross uses nature as a teaching tool. Classes go outdoors to look for phenomena that can be used to study anything from mathematics and science to language. Jumbo Williams, the school’s headmaster,
emphasizes the importance of environmental care. “When students leave school, we want them to be champions of the natural environment,” William said.
Today, the first lesson of the day is mathematics. To practice numbers, the children visit the nearby water trough to look at animal tracks and count how many different animals came to drink during the night. Language, speech, and debate classes focus on conservation issues. A recent student debate centered on whether people should give water to animals in the wild.
The idea for the school came from Sue Godding, who was the manager of a game lodge. She says that nature-based tourism is one of South Africa’s national treasures. She believes that the country needs to produce people who understand the environment and the need to preserve it.

Forest fires can be beneficial for trees, soil, and animals. First, trees are the major beneficiaries. Many naturally occurring forest fires, often caused by lightning strikes, are surface fires that burn the understory – the shrubs and herbs from the forest – without damaging the trees in the overstory. In this way, the fire eliminates competition from the smaller trees,
allowing the larger trees to flourish. Once the understory has been burned away, the forest is less likely to burn from high-temperature fires – the combined crown, surface, and ground fires that can do real damage to the tall trees. Burns are also a natural form of control for tree disease and insect pests.
Furthermore, forest fires can improve soil quality by converting the “litter” – dead leaves, twigs, and branches on the forest floor – to nutrient-rich soil. Normally, litter decomposes very slowly. However, fire releases the nutrients in the litter immediately. This creates an increase in the amount of phosphorus and potassium which are key elements that promote tree
growth. The resulting rich soil encourages seed growth.
Additionally, forest fires can ‘thin out’ the forest so larger animals can live in the forest. Animals like deer and moose, which need some open space to live, benefit from the thinning of the understory. As the enriched soil allows new herbs and shrubs to grow, there is new food for these animals as well.
