School @ the Centre of Community

Irene Juhnke

"Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.” This quote from Nelson Mandela and the unique and special work Symphonia for South Africa (through their flagship programme Partners for Possibility) are undertaking at schools, that are the magic ingredients that inspire me to volunteer my support and time. 

After a successful 35 years’ career with a multinational organisation, having had the benefit of significant personal development, it is important for me to be on the “education playing field” contributing to and unlocking our school going generations’ personal development and growth.
