BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY, one gold medal at a time!
Christel House SA held our Special Assembly on 18 April to celebrate the recent achievements of the school and to welcome its new Chief Executive Officer, Adri Marais. With ‘Going for Gold’ as the theme of the event, special awards were given to students and teachers who achieved winning results inside and outside of the classroom over the past year.
As part of our Valentine’s Day festivities this year, the Grade 3 class of Christel House South Africa visited Erica's Place, a frail care facility in Silvertown (Athlone, Cape Town) to give back to their communities. Their gifts of love included handmade cards, warm hugs, happy song and sweet treats! This is the multiplier-effect of public donations in support of the Christel House mission. We reflect on the words of founder, Christel DeHaan: “To share. To care. To make a difference!”
