Prof. Jonathan Jansen

Via Ghauderen Coetzee-de Vos Prof Jonathan Jansen @ Uitenhage High
school Thursday, speaking to Matriculants in Uitenhage. Time: 11h40.
Please make sure you are early and do not miss this opportunity. This is
the man who brought Oprah Winfrey to Bloemfontein. We both spoke at the
Teenage Equilibrium Conference at St Stithians College in 2011.


Well known author, columnist and vice-chancellor of the University of the Free State, Prof. Jonathan Jansen will be visiting Uitenhage to address and most probably inspire teachers.

Prof. Jansen, as the chief editor, released a book called Great South African Teachers (Bookstorm Publishers) during October 2011.

One of the stories included in this book was written by Mrs Ghauderen Coetzee-de Vos, currently a lecturer at NMMU.

Coetzee-de Vos submitted a story on the influence of Mr Joe Slingers on her life.

“Mr Slingers has a rich history with Uitenhage. He was appointed principal at Uitenhage High School the same year that I started my standard 6 education there,” said Mrs Ghauderen Coetzee-de Vos.

“He has gone on to play a pivotal role in my life until 2009/2010 when I completed my Masters dissertation in Education with the NMMU. He is currently lecturing part-time in the Education Department of the NMMU.

“The rationale for publishing the book Great South African Teachers is that so many negativities are associated with teachers and teaching, yet there are still some good teachers out there, giving teaching the high regard it deserves. Mr Joe Slingers is such a teacher,” said Coetzee-de Vos.

She invited Prof Jansen to Uitenhage to take him to the school context in which her story happened, but soon realized that limiting the audience of him would be an injustice.

“Therefore, the idea emanated to have a Teachers Day in Uitenhage, with Mr Slingers as special guest and Prof Jansen as the keynote speaker.” said Coetzee-de Vos.

The Uitenhage District Education Department came on board in allowing some teachers to attend this event on Wednesday, 30th November from 09:00 until 11:15 at the Uitenhage Town Hall.
