Andrew SteadWe are delighted to welcome our new executive head and headmaster, Andrew Stead, to the staff of the Drakensberg Boys Choir School.

Andrew is no stranger to the school, having been the Head of Academics here from 1996 to 1999. His experience of leading a school has been extensive, having been headmaster of Mitchell House Preparatory School and the King David schools in Johannesburg. After leaving the teaching profession, he formed the Foundation of School Leadership and Management.

Andrew is married to Jo Anne and they have two sons, Duncan and Garrick. We are confident that their time at our school will be happy and productive and we wish them all the best for the future!

Farewell to Anton RedelinghuisSadly, at the end of the second term, the we bid farewell to our executive head, Anton Redelinghuis. Having been at the helm for some two and a half years, and having guided the school through some difficult financial times, he decided to return to the bright lights of Johannesburg and once again, enter the business world.

Anton has certainly left his mark on the school in a number of ways. Not only was he invaluable in all things economic, but he was also passionate about Drakies and worked tirelessly towards improving standards in all aspects of the school. He will always be remembered for his insistence that the boys supported the core values of the school : respect, excellence, integrity, Christian values and care for the environment.

Above all, Anton is a humble and caring person and we wish him and his gracious wife, Rita, the very best for the future!
