Abstract
This research project focuses on the perceptions of school principals on HIV/AIDS Awareness Campaigns in public schools. The principals of primary and secondary schools in the Rustenburg area of North West Province were investigated.

The aim of this research project is to investigate the understanding of school principals on HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns carried in their schools, and to identify government and non-government organizations, which are involved in this process. A qualitative research method was adopted for this research project. Data were collected by means of interviews, and was audio-tapped. Data were analyzed and arranged into five categories; awareness campaigns, leadership, resources/tools, communication, attitudes and behavioural change.

The findings indicated that school principals do understand and support HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns in their schools. Communication resources and visual materials related to HIV/AIDS, however, were very minimal in public schools.
