This is who we are
Zaan Principal & Teacher
Zaan is passisonate about the school and the kids and her goal is to make up at school for what their homes lack. Not all the children come from dysfunctional homes but too many of them do and Zaan is determined to do her utmost to ensure it doesn’t disadvantage them.
She is a new member of staff. Christen found a teaching post in Kleinmond where she lives so it made sense for her to take it. Valney is teacher assistant to Zaan in the senior class. She is studying for her teachers' diploma part-time through Boland College and has quickly made herself 'part of the family'.
Genevieve Carolus Teacher
She completed her teachers' diploma at the end of last year and is now teaching the junior class, the 2-4 year olds. It has been quite an adjustment for her as last year she was working with the older children but she has done a splendid job and the little ones love their teacher and her smiling eyes.
The fifth member of staff is the stalwart who cooks, cleans and stands in whatever the emergency. Louise is truly remarkable in being able to provide sustaining, tasty food the children love while using basic ingredients seasoned with a couple of tins of pilchards or soya mince, spices, a sprinkling of cheese and fresh herbs grown in the garden.
