During his tour to southern Africa, Keith DeHaan, son of Christel House International founder, Christel DeHaan, paid our school a special visit in May. As his second visit to our Ottery-based campus, Keith enjoyed a school tour including one-on-one sessoins with small groups of students; a community tour accompanied by our Social Services team and musical items prepared by our junior school music department. Students enjoyed the opportunity toe ask Keith questions about his mother, Christel, her vision for starting the Christel House institutions around the world and her love for South Africa.
Much like his mother, Keith also enjoys the fine arts and was treated to a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the creative magic taking place in our high school art classroom. "Where we differ is that my mother favours the horns and strings and I have a passion for the brush and easel," added Keith. Thank you for your visit, 'Mr Keith'!
