“It’s an honour and privilege to serve as the new chairman of the Governing Body of one of the finest English-medium preparatory schools in South Africa. It’s also a privilege to be working with its principal, Ms Belinda Botha, and her team of educators.
As we embark on our 3-year term as your SGB, the other governors and I are mindful of the ever-changing role which the school has to play in enabling our leaders of tomorrow. As a learning institution, it is important that we are able to adapt and understand how things are to be done differently in the future. We must position this school as a responsive and key enabler for the future, all the while keeping in place what has made this school successful.
This school has, over the years, built a brand and ethos that must be maintained, nurtured and expanded on. I look forward to being part of the team tasked with this responsibility.
I believe that we each have the power and responsibility to get involved in society and our communities, and for this reason, I urge parents and families to step forward, involve themselves, and be a part of making this wonderful school even better. As your representative, I look forward to engaging with you in an open way about your ideas in this regard.”
