FEDSAS is the national representative organisation for governing bodies that informs, organises, mobilises, and develops its members to achieve and uphold the highest recognised international educational standards. FEDSAS focuses on the development of capable school governing bodies of all schools. FEDSAS is the leader in school governance and school management. The organisation was established in 1993 and over the past nearly three decades has grown into one of the most respected role-players in South African education. FEDSAS believes in maximum autonomy for governing bodies and therefore we strive to expand the rights, operational success and powers of governing bodies. FEDSAS supports the principle that governing bodies play an important role in creating opportunities for all learners to enable them to reach their full potential. FEDSAS supports the preservation and promotion of a culture of excellence in teaching, education and service delivery. FEDSAS is continuously striving to establish and build healthy relationships with all stakeholders in education in order to serve the best interests of learners. FEDSAS has sound experience of education issues. As an active, dynamic organisation, we stay informed about changes and restructuring in education and we can advise our members accordingly. FEDSAS is a democratic, non-political organisation.
