In the world of school, several activities take place at the same time. Some of these activities are focused on learning specific subjects while others are based on student and staff involvement in extra curricular activities. The school community is centered on teachers and students who, throughout the school day, are thrown together in the practical world of teaching and learning. While it is believed that teachers in general do an excellent job, continued supervision is necessary to not only maintain standards, but also to ensure that students continue to be exposed to improved teacher instruction. The success of a school depends on supervision, which according to Glickman et al , "is the function in schools that draws together the discrete elements of instructional effectiveness into whole-school action" p. This whole-school action must, therefore, involve the principal who is expected to take the lead in providing the kind of collegial atmosphere which makes for good governance and ultimately, good teacher instruction.
