KwaZulu Natal (uMlazi): The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education’s uMlazi District is planning to host a 3- Day Strategic Planning Session to tackle and develop new strategies and plans for the New Academic Year 2024. 

The motive of the Strategic Planning Session is to make sure that the year goes well and smoothly without any disturbance in education

The session will start on 8 January and will end on 10 January. It will be a three-day session and will occur at Northlands Primary School, Durban.

KwaZulu Natal shared a schedule of their three days:

Day 1 – The purpose of the Strategic Session is for the uMlazi District Team to put together proper plans, assign tasks accordingly and make important decisions. 

The planning session also focused on the District’s goals – Setting timelines for the new Academic Year, 2024. 

The session is also to assess and evaluate goals that were set in the previous year and to plan, strategize and bring in new perspectives for the current academic year. 

‘Setting goals is the first step in turning what is invisible to be visible’ by Tony Robins, said Mrs Mahlambi, the District Director for uMlazi, in her welcome address.

She also emphasized the importance of setting goals that need to be achieved. 

The session focused more on topics such as Planning, Leadership Management and governance, Curriculum Delivery Management, Provision and Management of Resources and School Functionality Monitoring and Adjustment and Alignment of tools. 

Nkosinathi Ngcobo is also planning to give her remarks in which he appreciated the leadership of uMlazi on a good headstart, hitting the ground while running and keeping the eyes firmly on the prize, which is the provision of quality and accessible education. 

However, the KZN Department of Education schedules this kind of activity every year in order to avoid disruption, and it makes education go in the flow.
