My Name is Cindy De Lange, I am the Chairperson of the Port Alfred High School Governing Body.
Life should not just be about WHAT we want to be but WHO we want to be.
Princess Diana once said: “I don’t go by the rule book. I lead from the heart, not the head”.
There is a saying by Confucius that goes something like this: ‘Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never work a day in your life’…
As I was recently thinking about my retirement, I realised that I am now the longest-serving member at Port Alfred High School, having completed 35yrs this year.
While most adults are pursuing New Year’s resolutions and possibly going on detox diets, I cannot help but think of a detox of a different kind for our precious children… a digital detox.
Once you’ve been at Port Alfred High School as long as I have, it’s not just your school anymore, it’s part of your identity.
For the greater part of this year I have not been able to be in the classroom. I have been denied access to the place that gives me pride and joy.
I hope that this pandemic is over soon so that we can return to a new level of normal where we are still #StrongerTogetherPortAlfred.
We are in Spring, which is the absolutely best time of year in the garden.
