henda-meyer-full-232x232While the Principal has specified duties, for which she is responsible to the School Board, the Principal is organised in such a way that the teachers helps her in achieving targets and goals. The first and most significant duty is the leadership of the school, which consists of the broad educational vision and strategies as well as oversight of the management of all the units within the school – the High School, the Primary and the Pre-Primary Schools.

To this end, the Principal has the three weekly staff meeting to discuss matters of policy and strategy, as well as receiving reports from the teachers where necessary.

There is a general staff meeting once a month. Apart from this, the Principal is also responsible for Communication, Marketing, Development, and Fundraising and in this she is assisted by several teacher committees.


Central to these functions is the central data base which makes the flow of information possible between the school and other schools and the community at large.

The Principal ensures the flow of regular and appropriate information to the parents so that all can be kept informed of events so that they can maintain their links with the school.

Marketing is necessary for two purposes; to ensure that the school is full and that our various demographic and diversity targets are met, and secondly, to ensure that the school presents itself to the world in such a way as to make the achievement of our strategic goals possible.

Development refers to the building and maintenance of relationships with a wide range of people and institutions so that we can embark on special projects called for by our strategic plans. The aims of our Fundraising ventures are the building up of an endowment which will provide the school with an income stream independent of fees in order that we can keep fee increases as low as possible.
