We hosted our renowned year-end Special Assembly event on Wednesday, 16 November and saw almost 200 of Christel House SA's donors, student sponsors and partners in attendance. The theme of the event was ‘Rise Up’, symbolising our staff and students’ resilience shown during and post the pandemic.
Students who attend our school come from some of the most vulnerable communities on the Cape Flats and many of them experience deep-seated trauma. Receiving love and understanding as a child and having the ability to trust someone, like a teacher or counsellor could mitigate the effects of trauma.
As a trauma-informed school, our teachers and staff meet our children with care.
