Greetings to school leaders
As we usher in a new Academic Year, we are filled with sadness as we mourn the loss of lives. We also have hopes for a better tomorrow as we plan a year of possibilities for ourselves, our families and our schools. SAPA KZN sends sincere condolences to those of us who have suffered loss. We pray for speedy recovery to those who are not well due to Covid-19 or any other ailments.
The Education Sector continues to lose individuals, including school leaders. Schools are going to be highly impacted because of this. Schools will require replacements in order for them to carry on. New leaders may have to take over at short notice with very little preparation. Now more than ever before we will require Psycho-Social Support and Collaboration.
SAPA KZN continues to be part of the consultative forum with the National Department of Basic Education (DBE). We have had weekly meetings with the Director General during the course of the Marking of National Senior Certificate 2020 answer scripts. We are now currently part of the discussions regarding the safe reopening of schools for the 2021 academic year. Two virtual meetings have been held in this regard this month so far. We will also be part of the quarterly consultative forum with the DBE’s Education Management and Governance Directorate. Our voice on behalf of school leaders is acknowledged as evident in the Minister of Basic Education’s public addresses. Our voice as SAPA KZN on behalf of school leaders can only be amplified by our membership numbers. We encourage you to join SAPA KZN and become a member. We have kept our membership fees the same for the past two years, at R600 per individual member.
Our role remains; to seek opportunities for professional growth and development, provide opportunities for networking and collaboration, and recently our voice on behalf of school leaders is recognised. We continue to be a non-union aligned professional association. Our activities, as evident in our planned calendar, attest to this fact. Due to the change in starting dates for the academic year, SAPA KZN activities will also be revised. Please see our website for updates. We will also update you via our SAPA KZN Facebook page. Please join the page.
In anticipation of changes that may occur at Senior Management level in schools, SAPA KZN has developed a STARTING THE YEAR checklist. A PDF copy of the checklist is attached to this update and may be printed for use. An excel copy of this checklist will be placed on our website. This can be worked on electronically. We hope this will offer some kind of guidance to those who may be taking over at short notice and perhaps be a tool that one can update to suit one’s needs, grow and keep for the years to come.
SAPA KZN cherishes your membership and we cannot wait to be able to meet each other face-to-face, when it is safe to do so, and be able to interact grow and lead together.
We pray for safety for all our school leaders and those associated with them.
Remain Strong, Brave and True.
