School @ the Centre of Community - societal change process

By sylviahammond, 22 March, 2012


Mobilising citizens and communities to partner with teachers to educate our children


Dear Sylvia


We have received many requests for more information about the School @ the Centre of Community societal change process and specifically the Partner for Possibility leadership development part of the process. I am sure you would know that this makes me very happy as we remain committed to mobilise South Africans to rally around schools and educators because we know that education has to be a National Priority!


We will be launching various Leadership Circles around the country over the next few weeks. This means that business leaders are committing to work with school principals as part of a co-learning & co-action partnership. The purpose of these partnerships is to mobilise the community around the school to partner with the educators at that particular school (for the benefit of ‘our’ children). We are already active in 47 schools around the country and dozens of leaders are signing up to partner with principals for this transformational development process.


In response to all the requests for more information, we will be hosting a few more information sessions regards the Partner for Possibility initiative on the dates indicated below:
