    PINELANDS

    Empowering principals

    GARY VAN DYK

    @gvdcapejazz

    A

    n organisation is growing powerful

    partnerships between school princi-

    pals and business leaders to boost edu-

    cation across all sectors.

    Partners forPossibility (PfP) is the organi-

    sation fostering these partnerships and they

    hostedagathering inPinelands lastweek for

    schools andbusiness leaders fromacross the

    peninsula.

    Gail McMillan, regional manager in the

    Western Cape, is one of the facilitators from

    PfP who explains how the project aims to be

    a creative solution to South Africa educa-

    tion crisis.

    Through our research and current part-

    nerships we have realised that this co-learn-

    ing partnership between principals and

    business leaders enables social cohesion

    through partnerships, and empowers prin-

    cipals to become change leaders in their

    schools and communities, she says.

    PfP is the flagship programme of Sym-

    phonia for South Africa a national NPO and

    PBO, based in Bellville, with a bold and au-

    dacious vision to ensure quality education

    for all children in South Africa by 2025.

    It was founded in 2010 when Louise van

    Rhyn (director and founder), became the

    first business leader topartnerwithaprinci-

    pal in an effort to improve a schools educa-

    tion outcomes.

    Our initiative speaks to the idea that en-

    hancing the quality of education, improving

    the school environment andencouraging en-

    gagement between parents and teachers are

    meaningful and attainable goals that would

    provide an upward spiral of real change in

    society. By placing the school at the centre

    of community we believe that a radical

    transformation can be achieved in the edu-

    cation sector.

    Last year the organisation launched a

    book written by Mandy Collins that chroni-

    cled the story of the community building

    process so far and how it leadership project

    has the potential to change and empower ed-

    ucation in South Africa.

    The book details its beginnings at Kanne-

    meyer School in Grassy Park when Van

    RhynapproachedprincipalRidwanSamodi-

    en with the idea of partnering to improve

    conditions for learners.

    At present that partnership is still flour-

    ishing and the model has spread to more

    than 200 schools across the country.

    The book details ten partnerships that

    have made a major difference to schools.

    At The Valley Primary in Durbanville,

    principal Priscilla August partnered with

    Ansonette van der Merwe of Capespan, a

    fruit export company.The school facedprob-

    lems that included poor parent and commu-

    nity involvement, poor pupil discipline and

    unmotivated staff.

    2 NEWS

    From Silvertown

    to silver screen

    EARL HAUPT

    @EarlHaupt

    J

    ulian Cleophas has lived most of his life

    in Silvertown, but due to a series of

    events, now has a vested interest in the sil-

    ver screen.

    Silvertown became his home after living

    in Kuils River for the first five years of his

    life.

    After journeying through Turfhall Pri-

    mary School and Belgravia High School, he

    eventually ended up studying a B.Sc course

    at the University of the Western Cape.

    However, his path would take a dramatic

    turn after enrolling at the Raymond Acker-

    manAcademy (facilitated by theUCTGrad-

    uate School of Business) where he studied

    entrepreneurship. While there, Cleophas

    was introduced to the world of modelling,

    which afforded him the opportunity to trav-

    el the world while participating in various

    fashion campaigns. The environment

    opened up the door for him to pursue a ca-

    reer in filmandproduction.He still pursued

    alternative career paths while modelling.

    After the entrepreneurship, I was pursu-

    ing an educational initiative called i-Wizz

    kidswhichwas a concept Iwas pushing that

    was focused on an incentive-based online

    educational platform for high school stu-

    dents to find educational resources and pro-

    vide them with a social networking plat-

    form to enhance academic achievement.

    However, following a stint in Raizcorps

    Pitch and Polish competition, Cleophas

    landed up at Visual Impact. There he met

    Uga Carlini, director of Alison.

    Alison is based on the true story of Alison

    Botha, who was raped, stabbed and disem-

    bowelled and survived to rebuild her life

    as an inspirational speaker. Bothas story

    was first transformed into a best-selling

    book I Have Life which has been translat-

    ed into seven languages and a perennial on

    Penguins best seller list since 1998.

    According to Carlini, this is the first time

    Alison has ever allowed cameras into her

    home.

    Critics have described Alison as one of

    South Africas most hotly-anticipated hy-

    brid films. Deploying a bold mixture of

    fairy tale idiom and unflinching frankness

    to tell its story of survival, resilience and

    triumph,Alisonhas already been dubbed a

    story of monsters, miracles and hope.

    Locally it has been selected for the En-

    counters International Documentary Film

    Festival (Thursday 2 - Sunday 12 June) as

    well as theDurban InternationalFilmFesti-

    val (Thursday 16 - Sunday 26 June). Alison

    will also be the opening film of the Mzanzi

    Womens Festival on Friday 5 August and

    is set for an exclusive Nu Metro Womens

    Month theatrical release on Friday 12 Au-

    gust.

    Cleophas says that being part of the

    project has been nothing short of inspiring.

    He says that the entire experience was al-

    so a learning one, because from amodelling

    and acting perspective, he only got to see

    one side to the entire process, but since he

    has been at Visual Impact and involved

    with theAlison project, it becamemore spe-

    cific to what he was promoting.

    You have to attach an identity behind

    the brand. There has got to be a feeling with

    regard tohowthis specific film isdealtwith.

    You have a person who is a hero to many

    people, who is this element of hope, a sym-

    bol of I can. You know,where thingsmight

    not be the best, but it is okay.

    A special, free, filmmakers in conversa-

    tion event with director Uga Carlini and

    Alison will be hosted on Saturday 4 June at

    10:00 at the Encounters Film Festival at the

    V&A Waterfront Cinema Nouveau. This

    session explores the complex relationship

    between filmmakers and their subjects de-

    veloping trust, negotiating access and the

    fine line between the public and the private.
