Christel House CEO, Nicky Sheridan, said “Christel House is a school for very poor children in Cape Town, who come from the twenty worst townships known for all the wrong reasons. However, through our holistic education model we enjoy fantastic results, including a 94% retention rate from Grade R through 12. We’ve never failed a Matric student, 65% of our students got a Bachelor pass last year (85% the year before) and, most importantly, 98% of our Graduates are gainfully employed once they’ve completed university.


“We need support. We are not a charity but a business that relies on funds coming in.”
