PfP Blog PfP at Fairmont High School

Partners for Possibility (PfP) was invited to speak at a Parent Meeting at Fairmont High School by the Fairmont Parent Forum. The high school is situated in Durbanville. It is their vision to place their school at the centre of their community and to mobilise parents and learners to take responsibility for their school and this was shared with the broader parent body at a meeting in February.


This vision speaks to the heart of the PfP mission and one of our Principals, Andre Pretorious, addressed the parent body. Andre is the Principal of Heathfield Primary School and has been a proud PfP since February 2011.

PfP Blog Chess Creates a Stir at Surrey Primary

Towards the end of 2012, the Principal of Surrey Primary School, Imtiaz Adams, decided to set time aside in the school week for every learner in the school to watch the movie “Knights of the South Bronx”.  This was done to help ignite an interest in chess amongst the learners.


The movie is based on the real life story of a teacher who taught learners from troubled backgrounds to play chess, using it as a metaphor to teach them to rise above their difficult circumstances.According to Imtiaz, many of the learners at the school could relate to the movie as they come from areas such as Manenberg, Heideveld and Gugulethu.


The movie was successful in promoting an interest in chess amongst the learners and many of them were eager to learn to play the sport. The school was able to secure enough chess sets for the initial demand. The popularity of the sport at the school has, however, increased substantially and the limited number of chess sets is no longer enough to meet the demand.  The focus of the intiative is on developing the talent of the younger learners at the school, to ensure the sustainability of it.

PfP Blog Alpha Primary: Partnership Reflection

When Marius November, principal of Alpha Primary School in Morning Star, Durbanville, and Jessie Daniels from Consol embarked on their journey as Partners for Possibility, their main aim was to incorporate the PfP philosophy into the school’s vision and mission statement. They believed that if the parents of the learners were more involved in the school, it would become the centre of the Morning Star community.

PfP Blog Community Building at The Hill High School

For the first time in its existence, The Hill High School recently hosted a workshop that every member of staff attended.
The workshop was the product of a conversation between the Principal, Sean Marques, and his Partner for Possibility (PfP), Reinoud Willemsen.  The workshop was aimed at promoting unity amongst the diverse team of 69 staff members.


Stephanie Dawson-Cosser, the Learning Process Facilitator (LPF) of the Leadership Circle (LC) that the PfPs are part of, facilitated the workshop. It was based on the Learning the Art of Community Building workshops that all participants in the PfP Programme attend. Staff members were encouraged to interact with people outside of the group that they usually socialise with. As the workshop began, it became evident that most staff members did not even know each other’s first names!


The staff members uncovered each other's gifts and talents and every person in attendance contributed to a new vision for the school. “It was a very interesting space,” says Stephanie.
