My name is Alan Peter. Being in the bush is my happy place, with bird watching and photography my favourite pastimes. My days of hiking, canoeing, and roughing it are over, but were both challenging and fun while they lasted. My career journey to Treverton had many twists and turns, via Namibia, Port Elizabeth and the Northern Cape, as I tried to escape God’s calling on me to teach, but He does not easily let one go! I have been able to draw on my forays into the business world (self-help housing, administration of a small diamond mine) to enrich my teaching, so it was not all wasted. I love the relational aspect of being in the classroom and am blessed to call many previous pupils my friends.

I arrived at Treverton last year as an intern after having attended here as a pupil from 2003-2018! I absolutely love the outdoors and working in boys boarding at the prep has made me explore more of the outdoors as the boys are always up for new challenges and experiences and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I have been part of the Treverton family for just over 2 years. First as a parent and now as a member of staff. I have a wonderful husband, who manages a sugarcane and macadamia nut farm on the North Coast and we have 3 beautiful children. I love my job as no two days are the same. Variety is the spice of life! As a family we feel blessed to be apart of this very special school.

Each one of us can help, no matter how small, to touch the lives of those around us. The Symons family farm lies outside Mooi River.  Ella who attends Treverton (Grade 12) having seen the devastation caused by the recent riots and how badly affected the residents are, raised funds, gathered food and distributed parcels in Colenso. #everybithelps #kindnessmatters #thetrevertonexperience

I arrived at Treverton 6½ years ago after I had decided to return from teaching in South Korea to further my studies. I was a locum for a teacher who had gone on maternity leave when a permanent position become available, so have been teaching full-time since 2016.
I have a passion for people, society, and understanding how the human mind works, so it is no wonder that I teach Life Orientation. I am also an avid reader, plant lover, and DIY enthusiast.  I have learned a lot at Treverton and it has been a place that has allowed me to grow but especially given me the opportunity to be part of something different.
I am big on adopting a growth mindset and particularly love this quote by Frank A. Clark  “if you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere”

I grew up on the West-Rand of Johannesburg. After school, I went to the University of the Witwatersrand to study education, specializing in the foundation phase. I completed the B. Ed. degree in 2009. Shaun and I met at university and were married in 2010. Over the following six years we welcomed three precious children into the world. Shortly after we moved to Treverton in 2018, I was offered an opportunity to be involved at the school and started helping out in the Transport Department. This is where I now work permanently. I thank The Lord for this position and his provision in my life.

Whilst my last name (Ndhlovu) means elephant, I am neither vegetarian nor extremely large. I am, however, learning to be a trumpeter.
I am very excited to have joined the Treverton family in the Music Department, and I look forward to the new adventures that await!

Nhlanhla here serving Treverton as the Chaplain. I firmly believe that children are a gift from the Lord that is why I strive to bring them up in His ways!

Before I was born, my mother prayed for a daughter. She also asked God to give her a child that is unique. I am not entirely sure that I am unique however, I do know that I see the world through different eyes, and I am definitely different. I would not describe myself as one of a group, but rather, someone who can happily be in their own company. My great grandmother instilled in me a love for writing, my grandfather, a love for music. I think I have my mother’s tenacity and drive and my father’s passion for life. My grandmother taught me to bake, paint, sketch and create. My uncle inspired me to love reading and my aunt made me aware of how much the downtrodden need our love, understanding and compassion. When I was 10 years old I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be an actress. There often is a huge crevice between what we want and what God wants, and my life followed a different path altogether. With age comes wisdom and at the age of 51 I realise that I am exactly where I should be. God has entrusted me with the precious souls and inquisitive minds of a multitude of children and I get to be a tiny spec on the horizon of their path through life. What an honour! I teach my students that they HAVE to follow their dreams because everything seems impossible until it happens. I also realise that I am doing exactly what I love, only, in accordance with God’s divine plan! I spend my days teaching my students acting but also skills that would be with them long after I have faded away. Together, we compose music, write lyrics, spend time learning, laughing, crying, discussing and discovering. I also know that my animals, too, are happy amidst the green hills and valleys of Treverton. Every morning I wake up to an awe-inspiring view of peaceful mountains, vividly engulfed in an orange splendour. Over a cup of steaming coffee, I cogitate…My name means “someone who desires to inspire, someone who is courageous, energetic, strong-willed and bold – someone who wants to make a difference in the world, someone with an aptitude to cultural interests and social issues. Someone who cultivates their creative talents.” I have to smile because I think I finally arrived!

I arrived at Treverton last year as an intern after having schooled at Treverton from 2012-2018. I am a very outdoorsy person so Treverton is a great fit for me. I work in girls boarding and absolutely love it. The children always manage to put a smile on my face.
I’ve made friends that have turned into family.
