I joined my brother at Michael Oak in 1999, in the Nursery and my teacher was Ann Coop. When I think of school, I remember doing Art, with a capital A and I miss that in my daily life. I also have fond memories of the morning songs in high school with Mr Scannell and Mr Cox who introduced us to that little-known group, The Beatles, and other favourites like Cat Stevens, now Yusuf Islam.
My best friends at school, were Megan Weber, Julia Lauri, Sean MacPherson and Farah Khalfe. Some of the teachers who instantly spring to mind, are Mr Paul (King) who made me a spritely necklace when I was feeling down, Ms. Vanda van Spuyk-Hulbert, who offered up wisdom beyond the mere teaching of classroom lessons. Truthfully, I didn’t understand everything she had to say at the time, but as I’ve grown older there have been a few occasions where I’ve finally understood her! There was also Mrs Tilanus who stepped in when she was most needed and Ms Daniels who made her Afrikaans interesting and even fun.
