What is SAPA KZN?

SAPA was formed in 1995 at a launching conference in the Western Cape. It is based on the principles of non-alignment to any political party or organization, or to any other educator body or union.

While SAPA is the national umbrella body, the association effectively functions at a provincial level. Each province elects its own executive committee to organize activities within the province, such as conferences, local seminars, newsletters, negotiations with provincial education departments in the interests of members etc.

As SAPA KZN President I will endeavour to maintain the professional integrity of our association, see it grow and ensure our members benefit from associating with SAPA. Our Provincial Committee is made up of Heads
