Sibongile is a God-fearing kind-hearted, loving and dedicated person. She is a community leader and builder. She has been with SchoolNet South Africa for 5 dedicated years fulfilling her role as Assistant Administrator. She is the beautiful smile that greets you when you come to visit SchoolNet SA offices!
What makes Sibongile’s journey here at SchoolNet so legendary is that she started off as a cleaner, even though she was trained as a teacher. Through hard work and professional development, she became a master Assistant Administrator. Sibongile personifies determination and proves that going the extra mile does pay off. She is currently a project leader for the C-Delta programme and is making sure that training does happen swiftly and efficiently.
When asked to describe what she does at SchoolNet she said:
‘’I love doing SchoolNet SA data capturing, project assistant work – but most of all, administering C-DELTA training workshops. I am also responsible for the maintenance of the asset register as well as the upkeep of the insurance policies. All of this gives me more experience to do better at my job and having supportive colleagues who guide me is bliss’’When we asked her to point out her favourite SchoolNet project, she could not choose:
‘’I am a Project Assistant which means I assist in all the projects and therefore I can’t choose any of them specifically as all of them are making a big difference in people’s lives in different ways.’’So, what does she want to achieve this year?
‘’I want to have the confidence to lead any project, hold meetings as a team leader and be a contributor to the whole process. I want to know how to help my team to work together, help them achieve their goals especially on the C-DELTA program, organize and manage, communicate clear instructions, listen actively, manage time, and be able to record the outcomes accordingly. I want to have more knowledge on preparation and dealing with more complex requirements such as controversial topics with a large group of the workshop where a parallel work and a whole team of facilitators or trainers are required.’’So why not follow this passionate staff member on social media and support her in living her dream here at #schoolnetsa!!
