|dc.description.abstract||The aim of this study was to evaluate the "beautification of schools" programme as
an environmental management tool with a view to facilitating the improvement
thereof wherever necessary.
An in-depth literature review on theoretical perspectives in environmental
management indicated that these partially addressed the problem of the study,
namely, to comply with some principles of environmental management system, but
not to implement them fully.
The theory developed from the literature review facilitated the development of an
empirical research. Qualitative research was conducted to evaluate the
"beautification of schools" programme as an environmental management tool with a
view to facilitating the improvement thereof wherever necessary.
It emerged from the findings of the research, that some schools do not have
environmental policies. Those schools with environmental policies lack
environmental policy objectives. They do not have time frames according to which
environmental programmes of action need to be reviewed. Although some schools
have used the environmental management strategies in the "beautification of
schools" campaign as a management tool, they have never taken proactive
measures to better manage the environment of their schools.||
