High-flying Limpopo School Principal, Luvhalani Bridget Sinyosi, Is Our Teacher Of The Week

CLASSROOM CORNER

Teacher of the Week

Teacher: Luvhalani Bridget Sinyosi

School: Dzata Secondary School, Nzhelele, Limpopo

THE principal of Dzata Secondary School, Luvhalani Bridget Sinyosi, recently won an award for excellence in secondary leadership during the 20th national teaching awards ceremony at the Ranch Hotel outside Polokwane, Limpopo.

Sinyosi works in a school with learners who come from child headed families and appreciates working in an environment where she can bring hope and meet their needs.

The Dzata Secondary School veteran school teacher was inspired by her mother, who taught her in primary school to take up the profession.

The school faces socio-economic challenges such as learners affected and infected with serious health conditions, orphans and vulnerable learners and teenage pregnancy.

Sinyosi has taken a lead to alleviate the challenges of these learners.

Sinyosi is highly involved in professional associations such as Nzhelele East Circuit, EMASA, and is a former Branch Education Convener in one of the Unions, mentor in different schools, and presents an educational programme at Nzhelele FM every Wednesday.

When asked how she felt, Sinyosi said that she was very happy because it was a huge achievement.

“I was competing with the best principals from nine districts in Limpopo. Receiving this award in front of all those academics, MECs, DDGs, District directors, circuit managers, and other participants from various categories made me cry; it was too much for me,” she said.

Sinyosi became the principal of Dzata in 2013 and since then the school’s performance has been more than an 86% pass rate in Grade 12.

“We achieve this through hard work, working as a team. We believe in academic excellence and developing the whole child. We also believe in teamwork.”
