In addition to the comprehensive academic curriculum the children will learn practical skills, including
permaculture gardening, wood and metal work, construction and engineering, as well as having a wide
choice of extra- curricular activities including sport, chess, yoga, gymnastics, music recording , debating etc.
The Heroic Journey
The adolescents at Lilima Montessori will also take part in a “rite of passage” into adulthood called the heroic
journey. This will be done with an ally who is an adult chosen by each child and various activities will
form this exploration of self (e.g one of the activities will be a 3-day hike in Malolotja Nature Reserve).
After completing this process, a celebration will be held to honor the achievements.
“Work on the land is an introduction both to nature
and to civilization and gives a limitless field for scientific
and historic studies.” — Maria Montessori
