Image: Prof Jonathan Jansen visits our campus Just last week we had a special visit from transformational education veteran and Stellenbosch University Professor, Jonathan Jansen.

Jansen came to see first-hand how Christel House magically works towards breaking the cycle of poverty. Jansen was expressly moved by the fact that we admit students from Cape Town’s most impoverished communities and give them a tangible opportunity to rise above their circumstances.   Read More...

Teacher Feature


Categories: ALL THE NEWS , Education
In our first edition of "Teacher Feature", we would like to introduce to you: Nasar Harris

Nasar has been teaching at Christel House for over 9 years now. Not only is he teaching life science in grades 10, 11 and 12 but he also acts as deputy principal for the high school.

Before he came to Christel House, he also got an offer from another, bigger school. But after being shown around, he immediately knew he wanted to support this organisation and uplift the community through Education. He felt like this is the place he needs to be right now to really make a difference.

As he put it, his personal “mission has always been helping students in high-poverty regions”. Coming from the Steenberg community himself, he has a special relationship with many of the learners here, which allows him to truly understand their problems; this is not limited to problems concerning school performance only. For him, it is not just about educating the children, but uplifting them in any way possible. “Transforming Lives” truly is a claim he can identify with.

A memory which embodies what makes Christel House so special for him is the memory of his first assembly here. The children were not just sitting there bored and listening half-heartedly as he had experienced at former schools. They actually took an active part in the assembly. He specifically remembers one girl singing “Step into the Sunshine” with such great joy and skill that it really left a lasting impression and made him realize once again that Christel House is an organisation worth supporting with all his energy.

The girl who was singing at that assembly later went on to not only finish her matric with excellent grades but was actually accepted at Stellenbosch University, where she is now studying Psychology. This is one of the many examples why he says he never regretted the decision he made 10 years ago for a single second.
