A Word from Our Principal

Education has always been in the heart of our family. My grandparents and parents had humble beginnings in the tulip fields of Holland, yet were lead by the hand of our loving Father to begin a school in South Africa, and to impact the lives of so many, not just in education, but in faith and love.

It is with this legacy that our school has become a landmark in the community. A haven of family-focused attention and care. Children are not simply a number here, but are seen as the precious leaders of tomorrow. It is our privilege to share the journey with them as they fulfill their God-given destiny in our country.

Teaching has always been my passion, my calling and my commitment. What better way to leave an eternal footprint than by leaving God’s messages in the hearts of our children? I regard it the highest honour to serve the young… for the kingdom of heaven belongs to them.

Being “principal” in our school is so much more than a title. It encompasses being an educator, a mommy, a tooth-puller and a fellow sojourner in life’s big adventure. Your prayers for wisdom are much appreciated as I am daily aware of the need for God’s guidance and direction to continue to make a success of our institution. As our school’s motto aptly says: “To God be the Glory”.

Yours in teaching
