growing creative minds


The South African Principals’ Association (SAPA) welcomes all Principals and Deputies into a professional body, where current issues in education are addressed, and where collegial support is offered. All South African Principals and Deputies are encouraged to join the Association. As part of its mandate, SAPA is required to host an annual National Conference that endeavours to promote best practice and enhance the professional development of Principals and Deputies.


This year’s theme, ‘Growing Creative Minds’ highlights the importance of both the duty of the Principal as a student in “Growing” their own creative minds, and as the visionary of the school, also seeing to it that the minds of the learners and staff are “Grown” creatively, through the quality of teaching and learning that takes place at their schools.
