Wisehub Summit Explores Accountability for 2019

Principals, teachers, organizational leaders and goverment connected with national and international researchers around priorities to transform the learning environments for our schools in South Africa.

Support from local businesses and enterprises helped make the event possible. The South African national carrier, South African Airways and its sister airline, Mango Airlines, provided tangible assitance to relieve the costs to our schools for their travels to Durban.

The three pulsating days in Durban from 19-21 October, 2018 were crowning moments of that journey and, like every Wisehub before, we vowed and strategized to make tangible plans to return with evidence that we take learning seriously, that our promises in the company of like-minded pioneers matter and that our children and young people deserve our best.

They have Tickets - They're Gonna Use Them

The South will have a word for the North when Ms Jane Tsharane and Mr Themba Sokhabase speak at Wisehub Voice Europe from 25th January 25 to 6th February 2019.

Interactive engagements with educators, researchers and business in Brussels, Rome and Stockholm will allow these two forward-thinking Principals from Sefako Mapogo Makgatho Primary School (Atteridgeville - GAUTENG) and Siphosethu Primary School (Ntuzuma - KZN) to learn and share as listeners and voices from the trenches of learning in South Africa.

Both Ms Tsharane and Mr Sokhabase have booked their tickets for their 11-day program in Europe.

These leaders share in a journey as professionals who constantly seek and deploy creative ways of inspiring their teachers, lead with integrity and expand their knowledge of cutting edge solutions while remaining sensitive to the realities in their communities. Part of the Wisehub community in South Africa, they also engage in collaboratives with other school leaders and groups on a regular basis.

They also lead their schools in a collaborative partnership based on the conviction that exchanges between schools hold enormous possibilities for serious teachers, eager students and high stakes communities. They recently completed a 2-day exchange when Ms Tsharane together with her school's Technology Support Assistant, Mr Tebogo Sibiya, visted Siphosethu Primary School.
