NEW Louisiana Primary School principal Thabani Memela, formerly the deputy­ principal, said he has big plans for the school.

Memela said since his appointment he has seen the school grow from 500 pupils to just over 700 and feels that for a school to achieve a good performance, it has to have an energetic leader.

“I am an energetic person and feel that my school is growing academically. I have big plans for it.”

Memels’s short-term goal is for his pupils to be computer literate and for many of them to pursue a career in engineering as he strives to make maths one of the priority subjects.

He said his qualifications will lead the school to greater levels.

“I am a qualified teacher with a senior-primary teacher’s diploma, a diploma in education specialising in maths, a Bachelor of Education (BeD), honours in leadership, specialising in maths and science and a Masters of Education in Curriculum Studies. I feel my qualifications put me in the position to take the school to a better level,” he said.

Memela said although the school is a low-fees school it needs sponsors and support with infrastructure as the school is growing and asks businesses to assist Louisiana Primary where they can.
