My journey at Royals Schools started in 2005 when I was accepted as a student at Royal Schools Princess Park for Grade 4. My teacher was the most amazing teacher I have ever had. I was a girl from a township school that could barely speak English. She was patient with me and I passed my Grade 4 with good marks. I was a student at Royal Schools from Grade 4 up to Grade 12. During this time I knew no other family. My school was my home and my family. Having to say goodbye to the only family that you have known for 9 years was extremely sad. I was scared…
In 2014 I started a new journey without the people I have grown to love for so many years. However my time at Royal Schools formed me and built my character. I know that my school made sure that I was fully prepared for the next stage of my life.
I never lost touch with my school, In 2017 I started to do volunteer work at the school and in 2018 I was offered a full time position in the administration department where I still work today.
When I was offered this position, the following scripture came to me: Proverbs 16:9 “you may make your plans but God directs your action”. At Royal Schools I have always been encouraged to dream beyond my restrictions.
I will forever be thankful to Royal Schools because today I am who I am because of the solid roots that were instilled in me.

I remember my first day at Royals Schools Princess Park as if it was yesterday. My parents did not even drop me off at the school. I had to find my way in all by myself. I was so shy and it felt like a lifetime to get to my class. I was welcomed by my favourite teacher. Mr Mike made me feel at home and comfortable. On the first day of school Mr Mike took his time to get to know all of our names. I immediately felt part of the Royals family.
To this day I will never forget the way I was welcomed at Royal Schools. On the first day I was given a Bible that we would read from every day before we started with any school work.
Royal schools taught me to be independent woman and my fears were conquered through the way we were taught and raised by our teachers. We were raised to stand tall in public and never be ashamed off where we come from. To this day I still stand tall and proud to be a product of Royal Schools.
Today as an employee of Royal Schools I still carry the values of the school with me in my workplace. I thank Royal Schools and the teachers that taught me and moulded me into successful hard working and values-driven person that I am today.

I am Nontobeko Precious Ndinisa. I matriculated from Royal Schools Princess Park in 2013. My school days were the best days of my life. I clearly remember my first day at school. I can still feel how warmly I was welcomed at the school. That day truly defined the importance of my school career.
As a child, I was motivated and shaped by the best teachers. I remember the love and support I got from my teachers. That is the reason why I will always treasure my school memories for life. I never thought that a school can have such an impact on one’s life.
The school and the educators truly believed in every single one of us. Royal Schools always prioritised the needs of its learners and staff. They helped me to grow as a person. In 2018 I started working for Royal Schools. I have learned so many skills and values. I truly admire the school leadership and appreciate the role that they have played in my life.
