Our goal is to enable school principals and their teams to transform their schools into centres of excellence that become schools of choice for parents.

Proactive Principals of Knysna

A group of 17 committed principals, the Proactive Principals of Knysna, work together to advance the quality of teaching and learning at their schools.

At the outset, they developed an overarching charter so that all participating schools could identify with a common set of values and goals.

Interaction among principals has enhanced their ability to share best practice and experiences, and to provide support to each other throughout the school network in Knysna.

Aside from the skills learned and insight gained, principals – and teachers – who have participated in KILT’s programmes say they have achieved an unexpected result: a huge increase in confidence. And with confidence comes hope – hope for themselves, for their schools, for their community and for the future.
