I am excited to use my abilities to serve the school. Good governance will ensure that our school is grounded in principles consistent with the Judeo-Christian worldview, drawing our children to Christ.

It is refreshing to be part of a school where educational practice (the “how”) is guided by a consistent educational philosophy (the “why”) which responds to natural curiosity. 

"Children  want to learn and to know."

It has been deeply rewarding to see teachers and parents working together to nurture and guide children in order to bring about growth in character and in knowledge.

This is true education, and I am blessed and grateful to be part of it!

Having our child at The Vine School has been an amazing journey. I have seen our child's LOVE for books and reading grow and her desire and motivation to learn has also improved. I think the thing I love most about this school is that they create an environment which inspires and stimulates the mind. It is never about forcing learning, but rather creating the appetite for it. My child's attitude towards life and learning has changed for the better. She now believes with hard work and faith anything is possible. When asked our daughter what she loves about her school, she said, “I love my school, my teachers and my friends. My favourite thing to do at school is playing Froebels, because I can build ANYTHING with it.”

As a teacher and a parent I was struck by Charlotte Mason’s statement ‘Children are born persons’. This idea grows an atmosphere of acceptance, each child feels valued, regardless of their apparent weaknesses. A child is a whole person, created in God's image, not merely an empty vessel to be filled. It is such a joy being at a school where I am part of shaping children's characters, curiosity and love for learning as well as deepening their relationships with God, others, and the world around them.

The Vine School has made a good impact on my life. It has taught me how to love, how to think about others before yourself and has also taught me about the world. The teachers are like our second parents, they care so much about everyone. The staff and admin are so kind and are always willing to give a helping hand whether to the teachers, students or parents. The Vine School's teaching philosophy does not only focus on academics but also focuses on behaviour, respect towards others and good life habits. It also has taught me as a Christian not to exclude nor to judge other people, but that in God's eyes we are all seen as equal.
