Celebrating a lifetime of contribution,innovation and mentor ship – Mr A.W Taylor

A principle unlike any other

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more your are a leader -John Quincy Adams

Mr Taylor’s legacy is not the various trophies and certificates adorning his office, it is the character of the man who has been a leader to all Brebnarians since 1994 and how he has touched all of our lives. Thus it is a considerable pleasure to congratulate our principle for his Nelson Mandela Lifetime achievement award.

His humble reception of this prestigious award and recognition of others who have contributed to the achievement of this award testifies just why he is such a distinguished leader. We are all proud to say we are Taylor-made.

All Brebnarians celebrate with you and thank you for your leadership that makes us…Our Own Brebner school! Best of luck for the next round of the competition to be held on the 26 to the 3rd of December 2017 in Gauteng.
