The Department of Basic Education will today, Friday 20 February 2015 continue the School Governing Body Election campaign with a roadshow at Thulamahashe Stadium in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga.
As key governance mechanisms within the schooling system, School Governing Bodies (SGBs) have a significant role to play in establishing policies that relate to issues such as learner admission, language of instruction at the school, religious instruction, school fees and a code of conduct for learners.
In participating in the SGB Elections every parent has an opportunity to positively impact school governance in schools within their community, a chance as a parent or member of the community to make a tangible difference to schools and learner outcomes.
Members of the media are invited to join the Minister officially launch of the School Governing Body Election campaign as follows
