With a new year always comes the anticipation of a new start. Even for the seasoned school staff among us, a new year seems brimming with fresh ideas and new possibilities. So it is with some excitement that we commence this year at Kuyper with a new principal, new families, new staff and new roles (for some not-so-new staff).
Following Ian’s retirement at the end of last year, Mr Mark Ramsay has now formally taken up the role of Principal. Mark will head up a new-look leadership team with a new structure and focus.
Senior Leadership Team
Mr Mark Ramsay, Principal
Mrs Kaelene McCaull, Head of P-6 and Director of Teacher Development
Mrs Alexis Clarke, Director of Programs and Development
Miss Cassie Dixon, Director of Learning Enhancement
Mr Alan McCartin, Director of Business and Operations
The following staff will also take up new roles this year,

We also welcome the many new families starting at Kuyper this year. We value your partnership and look forward to the contribution each of you will make to our school community.
Over the coming weeks, there will be several opportunities to hear about Mark’s vision for Kuyper and get to know one another better.
A special Principal Commissioning assembly will be held on Thursday 1 February, commencing at 9:15 AM in the School Hall. We would love all our families to join us as we mark this significant event with prayer and praise.
Additionally, our Meet the Team evening will be held on Monday 5 February, from 5 PM to 6:30 PM. Follow the link for more details.
