The South African Principals’ Association (SAPA) welcomes all Principals into a professional body, where current issues in education are tackled and collegial support is offered. All South African Principals are encouraged to join the Association. As part of its mandate, SAPA is required to coordinate an annual National Conference that works to promote best practice and enhance the professional development of Principals. This year sees the national SAPA National Conference proudly hosted in the Limpopo province. Set against this naturally abundant and diverse backdrop, it’s fitting that the theme for the 2014 National Conference reads “SAPA at the Forefront of Change”. B.M.
