    I have been so warmly and sincerely welcomed into the school by the staff and by the girls. In the first week it was very evident that the school is committed to creating a space in which every person here feels like they belong and are valued. I feel fortunate to be part of a school that is so deliberate in this endeavour. I have joined a thriving department in a very beautiful space and I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone better.

    I have been working here for almost 20 years and I really am part of the furniture. The facilities and schooling are top-notch, and the teaching benefits are amazing. St Anne’s is a school that has heart. The girls are special people and never fail to make me proud, especially on the sports field. I am so glad I was able to give my child the benefit of having her schooling here and, as for working here… well, I think that 20 years says it all.

    I started working at St Anne’s in 2009, working as a Gardener. To me working at St Anne’s I’ll say it is a privilege, we love each other here. There are different opportunities for everyone. In 2011 I started studying through Unisa using a St Anne’s bursary and I got my Drivers Licence through St Anne’s. 2016 I was promoted to be a Stores Clerk, I enjoy and love my job. I’m blessed to be at St Anne’s.

    Working at St Anne’s has been a true blessing for me. I have met beautiful souls that have taught me a lot but also I have been able to play an interesting role in shaping the young ladies that come to the school. I feel privileged to be apart of such a diverse and friendly community. Everyone is always so cheerful and kind that coming to work is always interesting and memorable.

    Having worked in many parts of the world and in many different types of jobs, from scuba instruction to software development and corporate senior management, I was lucky enough to make the change to St Anne’s in 2015. What makes it such a special place is hard to put into words: from the beautiful surroundings to an enthusiastic and professional group of colleagues and the support of school management, the list goes on. But I think it is the energy and positivity of the girls at St Anne’s that adds the real magic. Being part of their journey into the adult world is humbling and a huge amount of fun!

    Working at St Anne’s Diocesan College is an absolute gift. Every day I get to drive into a beautiful environment and walk to my office to the soundtrack of cheerful greetings from girls and staff alike. What I truly appreciate about St Anne’s girls is their spirit and willingness to engage in challenges. The higher you set the benchmark and the trickier the process, the harder the girls will work to achieve it. A positive work ethic, good manners, fierce determination, and humanitarian kindness are all values that I witness every day at St Anne’s. I am very proud to be a part of this special community.

    I have worked in many places, both within and outside SA (Malawi, London, Egypt, Thailand), and St Anne’s Diocesan College is most definitely THE ultimate employer of choice! The staff benefits are awesome.

    Life is an opportunity that should be grabbed with both hands, in good times and in the tough times. This is how I view St Anne’s – a school where you can embrace enormous opportunities. I get the chance to extend myself in my teaching, as well as in my own wellbeing. The environment is rife with opportunities to connect with people in a meaningful way, to reflect on a rich heritage of education and to see where technology is taking the education of the future. I truly feel blessed to be part of such a dynamic team!
