ISASA Early Childhood Development Conference­ 2017.

Last week Mrs Olive Surendorff and Mrs Uta Malzahn attended the exciting ECD conference at the Lebone College of the Royal Bafokeng in North West Province under the theme “education is light”.

Throughout the conference, the importance of ECD became increasingly clear - it is the foundation of learning. Wonderful keynote speakers like Mr Darren August (author of the highly acclaimed book, A Teacher Changed My Life), encouraged us never to give up and that we need to try one more time before we can get a breakthrough. Mr Gavin Keller (CEO of the Sun Valley Group of schools in Sun Valley, Cape Town), demonstrated the importance of “play” to create the necessary scaffolding for high-performance academic achievement.

In breakaway sessions, we listened to interesting talks and shared, discussed and communicated with ECD teachers from all parts of South Africa.

We also saw Chris Forrest, well-known South African comedian, in action and we met famous journalist and Carte Blanche TV presenter, Derek Watts, who was master of ceremonies.
