MEC urges parents to participate in SGBs


The MEC for education in Limpopo, Polly Boshielo, requested all parents and guardians of children of school-going age to participate in the election of school governing bodies (SGB).
Boshielo was speaking during the launch of the SGB Elections Programme at Tom Naude Technical School in Polokwane

In her message to stakeholders she said: ” Let us elect people who will advance the interest of schools across the province. Individual interests have no place in our schools as they will compromise functionality and good governance”
She said parents can do so by selecting eligible candidates to be members of SGBs or stand to be elected themselves.
The MEC also requested parents who are professionals to agree to be coopted to the SGBs to utilise their professional skills to add value to the governance of schools.
The process of electing SGBs commenced on Monday March 1 and is expected to be completed end of April at all public schools.
These elections take place after a three-year cycle and were previously held in March 2018 in line with the prescripts of the South African Schools Act 84 of 1996.
“I invite parents and guardians of children enrolled in schools within the province to voluntarily participate by electing other parents/guardians or stand to be elected themselves.”
