“What would our school be without our dedicated teachers and members of staff, who do their utmost to ensure our learners receive the best education possible?”
In preparation for the expected return of the matrics and Grade 7s on Monday, 1 June, Union High School’s educators and support staff reported for duty on campus today (Monday, 25 May) to make sure that Union is ready – with all safety measures put in place – for its family to return.
Union High School, Graaff Reinet, is blessed to have a staff which is very caring and compassionate, going far beyond the call of duty to provide the learners with the very best opportunities that a school can offer, and they do it willingly. This makes for a very special bond between staff and learners, adding to the team spirit and family atmosphere that prevails at the school and in the boarding houses.
This is more than a school, there is an intangible special spirit and atmosphere, and it is not unusual to find teachers devoting the greater part of their working lives to this school. It’s not an easy place to leave. The staff’s enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment to education has an immediate positive effect on any new educators who join the school.
“At Union we work with children, not against them and that is what makes our team so very special.”
