CULTURE and LIFE SKILLS

Monsaengdao Ecological School promotes an alternative integrated education. While teaching emphasizes practical exercises and self learning, equal emphasis is placed on supporting the students to live in a community and encouraging them to help others. Teachers offer assistance, guidance and opportunities to the students throughout the learning process both within, and outside of, the classroom.

Awareness and appreciation of cultural identity is encouraged and celebrated at Monsaengdao. Daily life at the school is designed to replicate life in the students’ communities as closely as possible. The girls cook their own meals, forage in the forest for traditional herbs and food, shop at the local market and sleep in buildings constructed in the traditional manner.

Each girl is encouraged to be conscious of their individual importance and to have a positive attitude so that they can be proactively involved in the development of their own communities to be socially, ecologically and economically sound in the future.

“Nature is a Teacher, Learn to be self-reliant, Courage to do good things, Be Happy”
