The theme further highlights the fact that the involvement of other stakeholders in providing support to educators stand is bound to translate into improved performance and better educational results. This year the SACE has identified 18 best achievers and performers from all the nine provinces.

As part of the celebrations, SACE is also unveiling a new home for all South African educators. The new office space is situated at 240 Lenchen Avenue in Centurion, will serve as a one stop centre where educators will receive all the necessary professional support from the Council. The new office space is also meant to accommodate the expanding services that SACE is required to render to educators.
On this day SACE congratulates all South African educators in the celebration of the profession, as well as the excellent and immaculate work they are doing in educating the nation for a better future and a prosperous economy. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________Issued by South African Council for Educators
