Stefanie Nel - Head Teacher

Dalia Wilck

I was born and bred in Oudtshoorn. After finishing my schooling, I studied Hotel Management through Protea Hotels. I now work in a family business in Oudtshoorn. My husband is also a local, and we have 5th generation ties. He is in a family supermarket business which has been trading for over 40 years by the same family.

We have 2 children, aged 3 and 6. Daniel, the 6 year old is in Grade 1 at Principia Primary. I only work in the mornings so that I can be with our kids in the afternoon. I love everything about Principia Primary and what it is offering my child. I am committed to being a part of the Steering Committee and Marketing Committee to ensure the growth and development of our wonderful school.

I obtained a 3 year diploma in Pre-primary teaching from Barkley house Teachers Training College. I began Little Bo Peep Pre-primary in Oudyshoorn in January 1984. After 3½ years of teaching I took leave to look after our 3 daughters. I remained actively involved on the school committee.

I am permanently employed at little Bo Peep for the past 14 years.

In 2010 Mr Martin Van Der Linde (then head of the former Principia College) approached me to join the steering committee and begin a new Principia Primary School. I have been actively involved ever since. I am also on the marketing committee, and am very proud of what we have all achieved in such a short time.
