More South Africans need to see themselves as having a role to play in our schools. Public schools in South Africa are designed to be partnerships between the State and "communities". This means that the general public have a responsibility to help supplement the resources provided by the State. You could do this by formally joining and serving on an SGB, or by volunteering your services on an ad hoc basis.
BECOME AN SGB MEMBER
You do not need to be a parent at a school to get involved. Our law makes provision for “community members” to serve on an SGB – a community member is really anyone who has an interest in a school, whether its situated in your neighborhood or not.
Some skills that schools need include expertise in
Most importantly, though, what schools need are dedicated champions, and access to as broad networks as possible.
If this is something you might be interested in, please get in touch.
ADD YOURSELF TO OUR WOODSTOCK COMMUNITY SUPPORT DATABASE
Please add yourself to our community support database by indicating which services needed by schools in the Woodstock / Zonnebloem / Walmer Estate / Salt River areas you are able to provide. If what you have to offer is not listed, please feel free to contact us anyway!
The idea is that local schools can make use of this database when specific needs arise. For example, if they need additional tutoring assistance, they can look at the database and contact those who have indicated their availability.
