School principals weekend confab on 'Brain Waves of Change'

Dr. Judy Wills, neurologist and former classroom teacher will be a keynote speaker at the International Confederation of Principals Convention hosted by the South African Principals Association at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Saturday.

The ICP represents over 135 000 school leaders across five continents and the theme is Brain Waves of Change.

She outlines what needs to happen in a school environment.

The important thing is to find out what turns on each child, some kids develop faster in handling things that they hear and some really need to be moving to get the experience.

Find out what they enjoy, she says.

And get them into a subject they would like to do or something they would like to learn about, are interested in, and what they do best. That's the key to getting their brains ready for what they need.
