Message from the President

ABOUT
A word from the President,  Linda Shezi


Taking on the challenge to steer SAPA KZN for the next few years is both an honour and a privilege. I was appointed the Deputy Principal of New Forest High School in 2007. My passion is seeing schools grow from strength to strength and to see schools have a positive impact in the lives of the learners, staff and the greater community.


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 of school who give up their time to make our association function. I am deeply appreciative of such commitment.

As school leaders, we must not neglect our professional needs and personal wellbeing. We plan to add a wellness programme to our SAPA KZN programme. This will not only help us to network, but it will also play a vital role in revitalising school heads. I am a believer in school functionality depends on the relationship between the principals and deputies. I therefore will be working hard in promoting deputy principal membership.

Our mission, vision and values are very well stated. We aim to fulfil these in everything that we do. We will establish partnerships with organisations and associations that will enhance what we do and help us fulfil our mission. We remain a non-union aligned association for principals and deputy principals.

“Alone we are smart. Together we are brilliant.” Steven Anderson

I look forward to interacting with you at various levels as we grow and learn together.

Let us remain BRAVE, STRONG and TRUE!

Linda Shezi
SAPA KZN President
