This November, we held our Parent Appreciation event, which celebrates parents who have gone above and beyond with regards to volunteering or making a difference at Christel House. Over 260 parents were honoured for completing parent responsibility requirements for the year, attending personal development workshops with our Social Services department as well as attending parent/teacher conferences. Working closely with our parents is an important part of the Christel House model and vital to bringing about meaningful change in the lives of our students, their families and communities.
Our school’s CEO, Adri Marais, handed out certificates to gold status parents, who attained 100% of parent responsibility requirements for the year as required for a Christel House scholarship. Special honour and recognition was also given to 16 parents who contributed over and above the stipulated requirements. Community dancers, instrumentalists, Christel House students and our very own staff member, Mr Ivor Arrison, provided the entertainment.
