About Bellavista S.H.A.R.E.
Bellavista School has an established reputation for excellence and the consistent feedback about the success of past learners testifies to our delivery and passion for children.
Our wealth lies in our professional knowledge, experience and collective expertise. With this comes a responsibility to share this with the community of educational and healthcare professionals who work with children.
The Bellavista S.H.A.R.E. education resource centre gives structure, direction and commitment to release these resources to the broader educational landscape.
“Share what we know; Help where we can; Advise and assist; Resource and equip; Educate others”.
At present, more than 5000 persons and organisations are registered on our database following attendance at our various training courses.
With this initiative, the school harnesses the collective capacity it holds within its own staff to improve the quality of educational delivery and intervention, particularly in the area of literacy by developing therapists and educators working with them in their respective professional designations.
A critical strategy for the school has been to develop public-private partnerships and, as such, we have collaborated with key, senior decision makers at a provincial and national level, as well as tertiary institutions and global partners, to ensure an effective intervention.
Bellavista S.H.A.R.E. Online seeks to extend the work of Bellavista S.H.A.R.E. by making continuous professional development opportunities available to practitioners working throughout Southern Africa and indeed the rest of the world.
