Welcome to Mr Sanele Majola

July 04, 2022 | Boys’ Preparatory

Today we welcome Mr Sanele Majola to the Boys’ Prep, as our new Head of School. Mr Majola joins us from Vuleka Schools where he held the position of Executive Head.

Our community will soon get to know Sanele but in the meantime, some background information is a way of introducing him until everyone has the chance to do so. Sanele was born in KwaMashu Township in Durban, and attended the University of KZN, Edgewood Campus where he received excellent teacher training between 1995 and 1998. He started his teaching career in 1999 at North-Crest Primary School as a teacher and became Head of Department at the young age of 24. He then moved to Gauteng in 2004, where he taught at Sharonlea Primary School and served in the school Executive team for a year and a half before joining Crawford Prep, Sandton in 2006. Sanele was Economics teacher and Deputy Principal of Sport at Crawford Prep, from 2006 to 2017. Most recently he held the Executive Head position at Vuleka School, overseeing all 8 Vuleka campuses located in Johannesburg. Prior to that, Sanele was the Headmaster of Vuleka St Mark’s Primary School in Northriding. He completed the Leadership Development Programme through Wits Business School in 2019. Sanele loves reading, sports, politics and spending time with his wife and kids. He is a people’s person, and an exceptional communicator who believes in creating space for others to develop and thrive. He is a servant leader who believes in the power of good quality education and has been fortunate to be a panellist in various educational forums.

‘I’m ready to serve, lead and be lead, teach and learn, speak and listen, and collaborate with all St Stithians schools to offer a distinctive  educational experience that would transform the country and the world .

We wish Sanele a very Happy Birthday for today the 4th of July. Sanele’s wife Lihle also celebrates her birthday today and we wish the two of them a very Happy Anniversary as well. A big day today indeed, for the whole family.

Mr Majola was welcomed with a hearty St Stithians war cry from the students, after having greeted boys, parents and staff in the car park.
