Warren Sparrow

Warren is currently head of ICT at Rondebosch Boys’ Preparatory School in Cape Town, South Africa: "My job description includes a bit of everything from teaching Grade 1 – 7, staff training in ICT, looking after a network of just under 200 devices and making sure that there is always enough coffee in the staffroom…. Most of my inspiration comes from people from around the world who are doing fantastic things with very little. I think what you are doing is absolutely awe-inspiring and it has changed the lives of countless children. Thank you for what you are doing!! For me personally my greatest gift to learners is that they fulfill their full potential, become true 21st-century, lifelong learners and realize that every one of them has a voice that can be heard and that one person can make a difference!"
