In front of Herby Arnott
In front of Tony Burrell Union:
Mrs Nelia Read has been appointed
Head of Department at the School. She is thoroughly
deserving of this promotion and will continue to add
value to our school.
We were delighted to welcome
Mrs Suzanne Marais and Mrs Elsabe Moos to our office
team at the beginning of the fourth term. Mr Stephen
Bezuidenhout joined the staff at the beginning of term 4
and will no doubt have an impact on his charges as he
grows into his new role here.
Mr Steve Grewar
leaves the profession at the end of the year. Mr Grewar
has been back at the School since January of 2012, and
has had a significant impact on the lives of our
learners during his time here. He has done all of this
while recovering from acute illness and has not ever
moaned or lamented his position. We are indeed
privileged to have had a man of his calibre and standing
as a member of staff at our school. We wish him a long
and happy retirement.
Mrs Wendy Venter has been a
fixture at the School since January 1990 and we are
saddened that this indefatigable and loyal member of
staff has reached retirement. Mrs Venter is a special
teacher, someone born to be a teacher, and latterly a
sports administrator, who has committed herself to this
school. Mrs Venter will be sorely missed.
Wynford leaves our School at the end of this year and we
wish her well as she joins her family in the Western
Jackie Bezuidenhout who has served as Debtors Clerk for
a number of years has tendered her resignation. We thank
her for her service and trust that she will find
fulfilment in her new role.
