A New Principal

After thirty years as full-time Director of Headstart Mercy Montessori, I have decided that it is time to hand over the direction of the Training Centre to somebody younger and with more energy.

ALLY CONNELLY has taken over the role of PRINCIPAL as from January 2017. She is well qualified, motivated and a true leader with many years of experience.

The Training Centre will move forward in her capable hands. The Centre, although registered as a Pty Company under the name of Headstart Mercy Montessori, will revert to trading as Mercy Montessori Africa.

Ally will be responsible for the running of the Training Centre on a daily basis, with the support of our new Administrator, Regine Craythorne.

I know that you will continue to give Ally all the support you have given me over the years. As I am passionate about Culture, I will continue in a lecturing capacity for the foreseeable future. Any queries can be addressed to Ally or Regine.

Graduation 2017


Graduation 2016

Our student Graduation ceremony for 2016 started with our traditional photo shoot on the stoep at our beautiful college. The ceremony and finger lunch was held afterwards at nearby Callow House, where families and friends shared in the celebration.

Guest speaker Jennifer Moore, SMA representative for the Western Cape, shared her knowledge gained over the last 30 years, along with her experience in underpriviledged areas in both the Western and Eastern Cape.

We wish all our graduates success in their teaching careers.
