Director - Vice Principal - QCS
Johan Struwig started at QCS as a teacher and his love for teaching has never waned. He lives for that "wow' moment when a student understands the concept that has been presented. Many students accredit their success in their chosen fields to the solid academic foundations he laid while they were in his class. Although he is now in a managerial position his focus remains - empowering students academically for their futures
Director - Administrator - QCS
Andre Nel has been with the school since its inception. He has seen the school grow from a small group of home school parents to an organisation catering now for students from Grade R - 12.
His greatest delight is seeing young people follow the plan God has for them with passion. His personal relationship with Christ translates into a daily testimony of Gods faithfulness and joy to the students, staff, and parents.
