The South African Principals’ Association (SAPA) invites you to join them ‘around the conference fire’ for the 9th African Confederation of Principals’ (ACP) Conference, where we will share our diverse, yet inter-woven stories at the foot of Table Mountain in the beautiful city of Cape Town. Principals and deputy principals from across Africa will be joining us at the Century City Convention Centre from the 24th to the 27th of September 2016 where the theme ‘Educating Africa’s Children: Opening the Gateway to Global Citizenship,’ will be discussed in a unique way. Delegates will be able to follow high profile keynote speakers, listen to panel discussions and participate in interesting workshops that will enhance current practice, challenge thinking and stimulate action. The meeting place at the tip of the African continent will present you with many new experiences, lessons to learn, places to see and people to meet. So book today so that you don’t miss the opportunity to write a new chapter of your story to pass on to your children.

About the ACP Conference

The South African Principals’ Association (SAPA) in the Western Cape will be hosting the biennial African Confederation of Principals (ACP) conference in the Century City Convention Centre in Cape Town from the 24th  to the 27th of September 2016. Our team has hosted many conferences with great success and many delegates, sponsors and presenters always comment on the excellent organization, programme, etc. We hope to build on the past few years’ successes as we host our first continental conference in Cape Town’s centrally situated convention centre. The theme for this conference is ‘Educating Africa’s Children: Opening the Gateway to Global Citizenship’. We will once again have a great line-up of presenters. We are hoping to attract many principals, deputy principals and other educationists from across the continent to this conference.

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”

Nelson Mandela

One of Thembekile Ndlovu’s (SAPA President) favourite quotes

“A true leader has confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent”.
