Words From the Principal
A brief history about the principal and some inspiring words from the principal.
“I became the principal of Tane Primary School in 2008 and the school’s logo had no colours, I then decided to come up with colours that will complement the motor. I decided to use the blue colour which became the colour of our school’s uniform. The logo of the school keeps on motivating the kids to do well as it states that ‘The sky is the limit’. This slogan was created to keep on encouraging students to do well academically and otherwise. I want the kids to know that there is no limit to study. On our logo we use ‘Thuto ke lore’ which means that Education is the pillar of success. The principle that keeps me going is that the future of my family depends on the education of y kids. This is the drive to get optimal involvement and participation of the parents in all the learners’ activities. To see what we have to offer, please make an appointment to speak to the Principal to find out more about this special place of learning and how we can give your child the best start to their educational career.’
