Watch as we celebrate our 20-year anniversary with a video montage, which we played on our Facebook page on 20 October, the birthday of our founder, the late Christel DeHaan.
2019 Alumnus, Storm Solomon is one of the many young people who has benefitted from an education at Christel House SA. He says, “Christel House has positively influenced my life by giving me the opportunity to think for myself, broadening my horizons and giving me the building blocks to follow my dream of becoming a Civil Engineer.”
The school relies on a network of donors and partners to deliver on its mission year-on-year. Donors who have contributed significantly shared their experiences of Christel House SA over the past 20 years. “I’ve seen first-hand the great work that’s been done at my visits to the school. Education is fundamental to enabling children to grow personally, professionally and socially,” comments Aongus Hegarty, President of International Markets at Dell Technologies.
A 99% matric pass rate average, Microsoft Showcase School status, a 1:1 student to device ratio and many successful alumni, including engineers, lawyers and doctors are only some of our achievements. Plans are also in place to widen our impact over the next two years. “The world ahead for us is one of widening impact, reaching more people, consistently sharing all the lessons we’ve learnt and enabling more people to become active economic citizens of South Africa,” says Adri Marais, Chief Executive Officer at Christel House South Africa.
