Community building at Realogile High School in Alexandra

Reflections of Stephanie Dawson-Cosser (Learning Process Facilitator)


I was working with the teachers on Friday and the parents group on Sunday. My partner for the programme is Louise Cameron from Roseact Saturday School /Rays of Hope. She attended our Community Building Session in February 2012.


The Realogile School presented us with a challenge, though. The principal of three years’ standing is in hospital with cancer. The school is demoralised and consists of buildings with broken windows, broken doors and empty labs. The students are generally tardy.


It was agreed that I would work with the teachers, while Louise and her team of volunteers would work with a class of learners per grade. The ten heads of departments (HODs) would care for the other classes.  Then on Sunday, the HODs would have a session of community building with parents.

Director and founder of Symphonia for South Africa, Louise van Rhyn, recently visited the United States of America as part of her mission to raise awareness about the Partners for Possibility initiative. Louise attended the Plexus Action Conference in Washington DC from 18 to 20 April 2013, and from 24 to 26 April 2013, she attended the Connecting for Community Conference in Cincinnati.


The Connecting for Community gathering is an annual three-day event for novice and experienced ‘change agents’ from across the world, featuring speakers such as John McKnight, Peter Block, Angeles Arrien and Harrison Owen.


The three-day Plexus Action Conference, hosted by the Plexus Institute, is described as ‘a network of people united by their determination to create something better’. The aim of the conference is to put vision into action – taking ideas into communities and successfully implementing them.
