CITY STORY hosted a Teachers Conference, RISE UP, on Saturday 5th October from 08h00 to 16h00 at The Station Urban Events Space.

Rise Up carries the spirit of Uyisibusiso (isiZulu for “You’re a Blessing) which set the tone for the conference.

The aim was to give teachers a new perspective of their role as city influencers and that they can make a difference in the lives of children.

WELL what can I say?

The 10 Makabongwe delegates who attended, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Kathleen Hastie Trust, were INSPIRED, BLESSED, MOTIVATED, EMPOWERED and MORE.

Each delegate was mandated to share just 3 pearls of wisdom they learnt at the Conference.

This was one of the most animated staff meetings we have ever had as each delegate shared what they had learnt!

SATURDAY 14th MARCH has already been PENNED into the 2020 diary.

This time I hope to send ALL my staff.
