“I anticipated that I would be inspired by my principal but I underestimated the extent to which this would be so. I am humbled when I see how vital the role of the school is in the Vrygrond community, and the responsibility Siddieka has in this context. My 20 years business experience now feels like an apprenticeship for the work in the developing and educational sectors. The complexities, ambiguity and challenges faced and humanity required from principals is astonishing. PfP enables me in an authentic way to ‘Walk Together’ with a principal while making an investment in my personal development as a leader.” Melanie Burke - Social entrepreneur, Partner to Principal Siddieka Hassen, Capricorn Primary, Capricorn Park, Cape Town

 

“There was a poor response to our first workshop. Then I realised that 83% of my learners were Zulu-speaking and sent out invitations in their mother tongue. We had an overwhelming turnout of 194 people (to the next workshop) with around 30 more waiting outside the room. Mindblowing.” Geraldine Leibrandt - Nedbank Business Banking; Partner to Principal Jenny Timol, Rippon Road Primary School, Umlazi District, KwaZulu-Natal


“What changed for me is personal growth: we get training that would cost someone in the corporate world R7 000 … and just brings a whole new dimension that raises the bar all the time. I feel like a better person interacting at all levels – with parents, officials and most importantly the children. I also see fantastic leadership skills, coming from the teachers that otherwise you wouldn’t even tap into, because they have been given the responsibility.” Alfreda Bekkers - Principal Holy Cross Convent, Bellville, Cape Town; Partner to Lizelle Esterhuizen, Metropolitan Foundation

“As we set about the task of drawing the community closer, more and more citizens rose to the challenge. We can proudly claim that more and more parents are involved at our school. We no longer have meetings; we call them gatherings. A gathering is arranged in small groups where citizens meet and exchange ideas and share their gifts, their talents. We deliberately create space for each voice to be heard as each voice is important to us.” Ridwan Samodien - Principal Kannemeyer Primary, Grassy Park, Cape Town; Partner to Louise van Rhyn, Symphonia for South Africa
