Meet our leadership team for 2017/2018

Cheryl Coetzee, Deputy Principal: Pastoral Care, Leadership & Outreach, opened the special Leadership Induction assembly on 9 October 2017, with a quote from Sheryl Sandberg (the COO of Facebook): When you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask ‘where to?’. Get on!.

And so, our leaders for 2017/208 are encouraged to serve with courage, but also with humility, kindness and respect. Mrs Coetzee urged the incoming leaders to create a code of civility, in which every person in the Dainfern College family would feel respected, uplifted and valued.

These inspirational words were the perfect preamble to the announcement of the 2017/2018 Leaders!
