There are eight Government secondary schools located in Stone Town, with a total number of students being between 12,000 and 14,000. Most students are unaware that they are spending their days in a world heritage environment.
The ZSTHS believes that teaching youth about the precious heritage that surrounds them will help pave the way for a more sustainable future for Stone Town.
In partnerships with the Ministry of Education, the ZSTHS has a regular program of school visits. Staff visit local schools to teach students about the unique world heritage of the city, the challenges facing building conservation and the importance of protecting our heritage.
