New principal at Woodlands International College 2019

After 14 years of service the Principal of the Senior College will be retiring   at   the   end   of   2018.  Finding   a   worthy    successor represented a major challenge for the school Board. Of great consequence  was the requirement that the successful candidate be closely aligned with  the  Woodlands ethos,  represent a comfortable   cultural   fit   with   its   existing   members   of   staff, and  share the vision of the Directors over the next decade  of the College becoming  a benchmarkable educational facility.

Says Founding  Director, Ronnie Matthews,  “We have  always  viewed the  Woodlands  concept   as  an   enduring   one   that  would   be capable of embracing  generations  to come.”

The Directors were pleased to appoint Mr Chris van Niekerk as the Principal   Designate   of   the   Senior   College, effective   2019.

Currently   the   outgoing    Founding   Principal   at   Founders   Hill College, he formerly  taught at Sandringham  High  School, St Benedict’s College,    and St Dunstan’s  College.

A past IEB sub-examinor on a national  level for Grade 12 Business Studies, he is also a well-respected commentator in a number of education-related  articles, and  prides  himself on keeping  current with trends in education.

Mr  van Niekerk  holds a Bachelor  of Commerce  in Industrial Psychology, a Postgraduate Certificate  in Education, and  the  BED Honours  in  Educational  Management  and  Leadership.

 

 

 

Says van  Niekerk,  “I am  thrilled  to  join  Woodlands International   College next  year, and    look  forward to    building on  the  sound  academic   and  co-curricular  credentials that have been established since inception  in 2002.  I am excited at  joining hands with the  Board  of  Directors,  the  school  staff  and  the  Woodlands  community  to  cement Woodlands as the leading  International  school in this region”.
