I was born and raised in the city of Durban, South Africa and after working for a year in Johannesburg, moved to Mauritius to start a family. I have two wonderful daughters both presently abroad completing their studies.

I had the pleasure of being at IPS in its first year of conception. However I did leave the school to bring up my children and embark on other business adventures, developing a food label and jam factory which still runs today. But nothing quite replaces the pleasure of working with children. I returned to IPS and knew that I had come back ‘home’. I have worked in Key stage one for fourteen years and spent an additional eight years in key stage two.

This is my second year in the Special Education Needs Department, where I am responsible for liaising with and supporting class teachers, parents of children with special needs and external specialists.

Through the years I have moved along with the changes in education. Watching children blossom using the method of inquiry so rewarding and knowing that the essential lifelong skills they are acquiring, are preparing them to be collaborative and internationally minded thinkers of the future.
