Ann Morton has been the principal at Pinelands North Primary School for almost twenty years. This timespan has been characterised by great change in South Africa, and also in South African education. Under Ann’s direction, Pinelands North has weathered the changes well, making it one of the most sought after in the district. Besides a passion for education leadership, she delights in teaching the very bright child. In 2008 she introduced a programme which provides academic, social and emotional support for these children, and Ann has just been to Denmark to present the programme to the conference of the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children.
Ann is recognised as an innovator in inclusive education by the WCED and nationally, so come and hear the story of how the school prepares their pupils for life by providing emotional and social support right the way through their schooling.
