Today, teachers across the globe are commemorating World Teachers’ Day. This day is dedicated to commemorate teachers and to raise awareness about the needs of teachers worldwide.
CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Deidre Cawcutt, Principal of Wynberg Girls’ Junior School as well as Rajan Naidoo Principal of Masibambane High School:
We have amazing teachers at Wynberg Girls and its been an absolute pleasure to lead a team like that— Deidre Cawcutt, Principal of Wynberg Girls
According to Cawcutt, being a teacher is quiet challenging as we work with children from different generations and we have to handle every generation uniquely.
On the other hand, the principal of Masibambane High School says being the principal is fulfilling to him.
He says he acknowledges that there are challenges that comes with being a teacher but at Masibambane they have learned to deal with those challenges.
It is painful to us to face all these challenges but is also rewarding to see some of the children become doctors.— Rajan Naidoo Principal of Masibambane High School
