Our Theme for 2018
Walking the talk
We do not believe that our learners should all be moulded the same way or that they should “sit down and keep quiet”. The 21st Century is looking for a workforce that can work co-operatively, that is creative, that can multi-task and that has a broad variety of skills and interests. We have to ensure that tradition does not impede this, but helps to enhance this – a balancing act that South Africans Schools have not succeeded at, in the past.
Hence our theme for 2018 of “Walking the Talk”, with the emphasis (unusually) on “the Talk”. Obviously, the slogan deals with the integrity and perseverance needed to do what you say, but on a deeper level it asks us “to talk” daringly, and “to talk” on behalf of everyone in society. In order to do this, we have “to talk” to each other across all strata, interest groups and belief systems – only then can we walk with purpose and in the certainty that we are walking in the right direction rather than blindly marching in circles of self-delusion.
Why don’t you join us on this theme for 2018, so that together we can move the country forward into a confident future?
