"Appreciation of the time spent at your place of employment is herewith made. It has been thirty eight tedious years that I really feel they were worth their toll. I loved every minute of each day that I spent at your institution. However its time for me to say good bye, as the grass is now spectre grey and I feel there`s a need to for greener pastures.


Allow me to thank you and your pundits on ensuring that on the 20th day of each month my wages in a form salary was deposited into my banking account. You were prompt and regular in payments as it caused you no pain as you qualified it as peanuts with a few raisins. Your monthly electricity bill is three times more than my salary and twice more than your monthly petrol allowance but I soldiered on. Remember your definition of salary is a token offered to the unwise for their silence.


My natural energies has been drained and am incapable to perform any further activity including the conjugal duties. I am glad for the time we spent together and looking forward to seeing you soon.


Kind regards

 SM Langa"

"My stay at Greenfields Primary School


This is how I would like to appreciate my stay at the above mentioned school. I joined Greenfields primary school in 2006 and was fortunate to be amongst the first five that were employed when the school started functioning. 


I would say, working in that school was the most interesting and exciting period throughout my teaching experience. I learnt a lot from the community at large and  came to an understanding that in order for me to enjoy my stay I first needed to understand and appreciate the socio economic and political background of them.


Obviously challenges were there , however they did not stop me from performing my daily deliverables be it in class,staff members and the community.


The support provided to me by the SMT ,SAPS. Metro police when conducting awareness campaigns was immeasurable .


To those wishing to pursue their career at Greenfields Primary, I would say, go for it,that school has a tremendous amount of teachers with experience.


With that having said, thank you so much to my former SMT members, my colleagues i.e

teaching and none teaching staff and finally parents for believing in me in taking care of their offsprings until I exited the system in May 2022. 


Thank you Greenfields Primary School."
