The GBF has established the necessary resources and infrastructure, and possesses the legal expertise, knowledge and experience, to service its members’ needs efficiently. Our facilities can be of value to all public schools which find themselves faced with these types of governance challenges.

The philosophy and policy of the GBF is one of constructive engagement with the Department of Education. It is our aim to work with Provincial Departments in order to set up and maintain the efficient and effective governance of schools. It is not the GBF’s policy to adopt a confrontational approach unless all other approaches have failed to yield a satisfactory result.
