FAREWELL MRS. VAN SCHALKWYK
The "Wheel of Life" keeps on turning and Mrs. Van Schalkwyk, our beloved principal has decided to say goodbye to Sedaven Primary School. She leaves with sadness in her heart because this little school has dominated her life for many years. She has however decided that the time has come for her to dedicate more time and attention to her husband and family who live and work in Secuda. Because of distance they could see one another very seldom while she was serving as school principal.
Under Mrs. Van Schalkwyk's leadership the school has grown strong and healthy in many respects. The enrollment nearly doubled, innovative technology was incorporated into the school programme, the ANA results improved from year to year and, above all, many learners grew from mere todlers into lanky teenagers who have learned to know Jesus Christ as personal Friend and Saviour.
We will miss Mrs. Van Schalkwyk and we wish her joy and fulfilment as she takes up her new role as full-time wife and mother.
In the picture below Mrs. van Schalkyk hands over the 'candle of leadership" to Dr. P.W. Coetser who will serve as acting principal until such time as the administrative wheels have turned and a school principal could be appointed by the school board.
