The chosen theme for this year’s camp: I teach for the future  emphasises the importance of your future roles as teachers in our schools, communities and society. We believe that excellent school teachers in the primary school are the best investment we can make in our country, South Africa. All of the activities in the schedule reflect the important elements of our programme for each day of the camp towards helping you realise our vision of preparing you to teach for the future. Everything you will do as teachers directly impacts the future of the children who will pass through your classrooms. As teacher educators, we only have four years to help you develop into excellent teachers for the primary school. This camp is the start of this journey towards excellence; it starts with developing the right attitude, work ethic, knowledge and skills as teacher education students who will grow into mature, knowledgeable, dedicated teachers.
