Building healthy, effective, inspired teachers
Teachers play an important role in the lives of our children as their task is not only to impart knowledge, but also to support, inspire and be a positive role model.
However, there are many teachers in South Africa who are not able to adequately fulfill this role due to the stresses and pressures of the context in which they work. Overcrowded and under resourced schools located in communities with problems such as poverty, crime, substance abuse and ill health, results in many additional challenges for our teachers. There is a great need for them to be better supported to deal with this situation.
The TEACHERS’ WELLNESS CONVENTION aims to empower teachers with the knowledge and tools to better manage their stress and improve their health and overall well-being.
This one day event will offer 250 teachers an opportunity to learn from leading experts in the Wellness sector. There will be over twenty workshops, demonstrations and talks, as well as a range of exhibits and food stalls for teachers to choose from.
