LEAP Voice: Working Hard

The fifth edition of the LEAP Voice focused on the Working Hard component of the LEAP Code of Conduct and was emailed out on 20 February 2013.

In this issue we celebrate the hard work of our 2012 matric students and our graduates. LEAP’s new Instructional Leader, Glenn Bunger, shares some of his insights into how we can develop work ethic in young people. We also celebrate our educational and funding partnerships.

As Mike Feinberg, founder of KIPP Schools, said in his interview with Sophie Hobbs:

The underlying premise is that there are no short cuts to teaching kids. We, as adults and educators, have to roll up our sleeves and get working.
