Snippet from Dr Richard Hayward’s editorial: “South Africa is a huge country and NAPTOSA members are scattered from Bantry Bay to Beit Bridge – literally! So, please let me know what’s happening in your part of the world. NAPTOSA has often been seen as a family. As editor, one of my tasks is to let you know what’s happening in the NAPTOSA family.” You can contact Dr Richard Hayward on 011 888 3262 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

 Snippet from the article: Making schooling more effective, ”NAPTOSA is pleased that the question of quality as well as that of effective management and governance and other crucial issues in education are now being addressed in a more coordinated manner in the National Education Collaboration Trust (NECT). This body brings together the important stakeholders in education including the education authorities, big business, and the teacher unions and governing Bodies. The objective is not just to identify the issues but to get consensus on strategies to jointly address the challenges that militate against the delivery of a world-class quality of education.”

Read about NAPTOSA members’ efforts going beyond the call of duty for learners, tackling issues that negatively impact on the delivery of Quality Education.

Essential elements of Quality Education remain quality teachers, quality tools & quality environment.
