Career Talks at Makgatho Primary

On the 16th of October 2013, Bob Head, who is the Special Advisor to the Commissioner of SARS, participated in a Career Talk at Makgatho Primary School.


Bob is the Partner for Possibility to Principal of Makgatho Primary School, Jane Tsharane. Three of his colleagues, Linda Ngotya (PA), Odette Brown (Project Manager) and Musa Mailula (web usability and research) co-presented the talk. The talk was aimed at Grade 6 and Grade 7 learners.

“...it was really so they could think about their studies and give them info on what we do...” said Bob when asked about the need for the talk. The learners were able to ask questions at the end of the talks, asking questions like, “How much do you earn?”, “Did your parents choose your job for you” and “How do you decide?”


According to Bob, one other positive outcome of the talk is that it got people (in this instance his colleagues) who are not usually involved in education involved in the school.
