The purpose of Module 5 is to develop the participants’ knowledge of the social and economic communities within which their schools are located. In South African policy, schools are conceptualised as being centers of the community. It is with this in mind, that Module 5 seeks to promote and establish positive collaborative relationships between schools and the communities in which they are located. As a school principal, it is
important to take cognisance [to take notice] of the influence that communities can have on the school, the school’s leadership and management staff and structures. Equally important is for the school leadership to think about the ways in which the school has influence on and can impact the community.
