A Message from the Principal
Welcome to Amanzimtoti Primary School! As you browse through our web pages my hope is that you will note that we pride ourselves on providing education of the highest standard. Our aim is to offer our learners varied learning opportunities so that they can reach their full academic social and moral potential. Hopefully, amongst all the seriousness of school life, you will see that we also have fun and good times, a vital commodity in this very busy world.
Jim Collins in his book, “Good to Great”, talks about “good being the enemy of great”. In the world today there is a shortage of great schools, great governments, great businesses and even great people. The reason being that for most of us, the vast majority, settle for 2nd best – GOOD. For most people being the best is not our aim or goal as it takes that extra 105% effort, so good is OK.
Here at Amanzimoti Primary we have a saying that is often shared with all – “never give up until your good is better and your better is best!” That is our dream, that we produce young people who will be driven by this motto. We need to produce young men and women of value! Young men and women who are respectful, caring, fair, responsible, trustworthy citizens of our homes, school and this beautiful Rainbow Nation.
This is quite a tall order but we are fortunate here at Amanzimoti Primary to have the “A Team”. This team consists of an amazing, motivated and capable staff, an effective and supportive Governing Body, our learners who are the “School” and our Parents. This is a winning combination and it will ensure that we can always give of our best and be the BEST – good is not enough.
