Participation Council


The Participation Council is a formal body within the school that supports the school management in its policy-making. It ensures that the interests of the children, their parents and the employees are taken into consideration when developing new policies. On many issues, the PC has an advisory role. On some issues, the PC even has a decisive vote.

The PC consists of two employees and two parents (it should always be an even number). The parent representatives have been elected by the parents and the employee representatives by their colleagues.

These are the present members:


Freddy Nyiti (Class 1 parent) & Ieva Henrikson (Class 5 parent)


Sarah Mann (admissions and administration) & Lindie van Jaarsveld (Class 5/6 teacher)

If you have any questions, concerns or compliments that you would like to share with the PC, you can email them at:
