PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Schools of today have three choices:

They can be prisoners of the past
Puppets of the present -
Or pioneers of the future.

At Danville the past can never hold us prisoner, for when we look back we see a history of excellence that has paved the way to a bright today and an awesome tomorrow. The past has given us only challenges and opportunities that we can celebrate.

I am extremely proud to be a part of this marvellous school. It is a school that is home to a diverse group of young people, but together we aspire to reach the full potential of each individual learner. It is my belief in the unquenchable spirit of our young people and their value as worthy citizens of our society that has always driven me on my journey towards excellence in the schools where our young people were entrusted to me.

I am privileged to be allowed to continue working with the most precious asset in the world – our children, our Danville Diamonds and am truly honoured to have been appointed to lead Danville Park. As a school of excellence, Danville Park’s motto echoes my own personal and educational philosophy of People, Purpose, Passion, Presence and Policy.

I am inspired by the knowledge that all stakeholders will continue to carry Danville Park into the next era as pioneers of the future.

Our Focus this year is “Brave, Strong, Smart and Loved” and I hope everyone will bring these very powerful words to fruition in 2019. The words come from the famous Winnie the Pooh quote) "Always remember you are BRAVER than you believe, STRONGER than you seem, SMARTER than you think & LOVED more than you know".

"As we welcome you back in 2019, and just as Piglet asked Winnie the Pooh, "What will this year bring?" Pooh replied : "It will bring us 365 opportunities".

So take every single day to live our focus of being Brave, Strong, Smart and Loved and as you are loved remember that your greatness is not what you have, but what you give, and that you will give as much love as what you are expecting”.

Yours sincerely

MRS L A SCHOLTZ
