Partners for Possibility



Rembrandt Primary Rembrandt Primary Career Day at Multotec

Rembrandt Park Primary held a Career Day on 15 October 2012 at Multotec in Johannesburg, as a run-up to the schools official Career Day. The Multotec Group was established more than thirty years ago and its core business is the supply of products and services to the mining, mineral beneficiation and power generation industries.  110 learners, 4 teachers and Principal Elizabeth Seema attended the Career Day. Everyone was given visitor tags, stationery and mineral water on arrival which made the learners feel very important and welcomed by the friendly staff of Multotec.

 
The session began with a welcome and then presentations by individuals within the company who were involved in various careers such as finance, human resource management, engineers, fitters and turners and many more. The emphasis was that not all of us will end up with a degree, but practical work is vital and is very much in demand in many industries. 
 
The learners were allowed to ask questions after each presentation. The questions were very thought provoking, intelligent and clarified many details of the various careers on display.  The learners and teaching staff then boarded the bus to view other areas of the company to see aspects of the production capacities that it has. After a lovely lunch they returned to school in time for the final bell of the day and to prepare for the official Career Day to be hosted the next day.
 
“The children certainly learned a lot and it was good to take them to a company environment, rather than to just tell them about it.” Principal Elizabeth Seema said.
 
The Principal, staff and learners of Rembrandt Primary School would like to thank everyone at Multotec involved with facilitating this event, especially Bernadette and Thomas and they look forward to a continued relationship with Multotec.

Ebuhleni Primary School Blog Ebuhleni abound with possibility

Two leaders in their own right – School Principal, Nelisiwe Khoza, and Sales Manager, Collin Mkhize - have successfully improved aspects of school life at Soweto’s Ebuhleni Primary by participating in the Partners for Possibility (PfP) leadership development process

 

Over the 12-month period, the partners made notable headway in tackling the various issues at the school, which range from below par academic performance and a lack of extra mural activities to team cohesiveness and inadequate school infrastructure.                                                      

While the PfP Time to think, Flawless Consulting and Community Building workshops helped Nelisiwe and Collin gain awareness in terms of their own leadership, a perhaps more significant outcome of this experience was the formulation of a comprehensive school improvement plan which presented the duo with an opportunity to implement their newly acquired leadership skills.

These were their specific focus points:

PfP Blog Partners for Possibility needs you in 2019

Partners for Possibility (PfP), through its leadership development and principal support programme, continues to positively transform under-resourced schools in South Africa – school by school.

In the eighth year, and with an audacious target of impacting 2,000 under-resourced schools by 2030 in mind, the programme succeeded in reaching 900 schools.

This signifies that there is increasing awareness among individuals and businesses of the urgent task at hand – to sustainably solve the country’s deepening education crisis. The programme’s footprint this year alone also points to a shift in the thinking of ordinary citizens: towards the realisation that the active citizenry of South Africa possesses the power to turn the tide.

PfP Blog School Leadership Forums in Cape Town and Johannesburg wrap up a successful 2018

As 2018 drew to a close, speakers at two School Leadership Forum (SLF) events highlighted the crucial role that leadership plays in the delivery of education and the success of the country

The final SLF event held this year in Cape Town was hosted in the Waterfront on 8 November. The guest speaker was prominent activist, political thinker, academic, medical doctor, businesswoman and Dr Mamphela Ramphele. Dr Ramphele probed the notion of reimagining and rebuilding South Africa in a rousing talk during which she posed sometimes difficult, but wholly necessary, questions about the ailing South African education system and the role of school leadership in rectifying it. She also called attention to the positive strides made by the past and current contingent of courageous school leaders, instilling a sense of hope and possibility.

PfP Blog Outdoor Classroom Day 2018: Celebrating the benefits of outdoor learning

The success of this year’s annual global Outdoor Classroom Day campaign has shown that teaching and learning needn’t be confined to the four walls of the classroom. Despite the inclement weather that affected some parts of South Africa on 1 November 2018, schools across the country held at least one class outdoors and showed unique South African flair and originality in the activities they chose!

Around 150,000 learners from early childhood development (ECD) centres and schools across South Africa participated this year in the event which promotes outdoor learning. The campaign’s long-term goal is for outdoor learning to become part of every school day for every child.
