The importance of the culture of the school cannot be under-estimated. School culture is the basis of all success and achievement at the school. It is the culture of the school that regulates the behaviour of the school community, it is the school’s culture that builds commitment to purpose among all members and stakeholders of the school, and it is the school’s culture that builds and sustains the pride that moulds the school community into a viable force. The culture of the school impacts learner attitude and performance, teacher commitment and professionalism, and parental involvement and support. The culture of the school is the basis of a positive school image, and the reason for the resulting respect that comes from the community and community structures and institutions. All priorities and activities of the school must be embedded in a positive school culture in order to improve the chance of success.
