About Our Logo

The Valued Citizens Initiative logo was designed by learners from Ikageng Primary School, the first school to be part of Valued Citizens Initiative’s endeavours.

The colours used in the logo are those of the South African national flag. The reason for the use of these colours is to express our pride in being South African citizens.

The yellow circle symbolises the unification of the nation and also portrays the never-ending spirit of Ubuntu.

In the centre of the logo are two colours - red (left) and green (right), shaped to form a heart. The heart expresses the need for caring, sharing and most of all LOVING.

The red coloured figure on the left represents parents. The green coloured figure on the right represents educators. The blue figure in the middle signifies a learner. Holistically, the logo emphasises how parents and educators are needed to facilitate the growth of children.

This month we honoured, celebrated and rewarded 149 educators and School Management Team members from 25 public primary and high schools that have completed successfully this programme. Teachers are the backbone of our society, they not only teach and mould our children but they help groom and raise our leaders. Leadership is transferrable, and through this programme we assist educators to ignite and reignite their own leadership flames in order to awaken learners they encounter.
