Principal
Personal Educational Philosophy
"I believe that pre-school education should be about creativity - teachers using their creativity in providing imaginative and motivating learning opportunities, in a challenging and stimulating environment, so that children are encouraged and supported in becoming spontaneous, divergent and enthusiastic learners.

Giving children an age-appropriate and extending education will provide them with facts and information which can then be transferred and used in new and exciting ways. An early learning environment like this will equip children not only for formal education but will instil an interest in lifelong learning as they acquire skills, knowledge and attitudes."

Barbie and St Martin's
"It is a privilege and pleasure to lead a team of professionals who see working in this School as a vocation and a ministry, not merely as a job.
I value their understanding that St Martin's is an educational institution; that whilst we nurture the children in our care, our primary aim is to enhance and extend their all-round development - socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, aesthetically and spiritually.
I so enjoy the laughter and fun we share as we work together with commitment, dedication and responsibility to the benefit of the children.
St Martin's is a loving, caring and affirming environment in which each individual is respected and valued - both the big people and the little people! Because of this I love to come to School each day... "

Training and Experience
Barbie has a number of educational diplomas including a Diploma in Education for the Pre-Primary School, a Higher Diploma in Education for the Senior Primary School and a Further Diploma in Education - these allow for specialist training in pre-primary, junior primary and senior primary education as well as remedial education and guidance and counselling. Barbie’s Post Graduate Diploma in Higher Education enables her to lecture in tertiary education. She has also completed numerous phase-related certificates.

Barbie began her teaching career at St Martin's Pre-Primary School, she then moved to Pietermaritzburg at the behest of the Natal Education Department to work at Tee See Pre-Primary, the “demonstration” school attached to the then Natal College of Education. Barbie opened one of the inaugural, flagship Reception Classes at Model Junior Primary in the mid-80's. She then returned to Durban, on promotion, as Head of Department to Berea West Pre-Primary School and joined St Martin's Pre-Primary School as the Principal in 1987.
Barbie especially values the experience she had in serving on the NED Syllabus Committee for many years; being involved in writing the curriculum for the Grade R/School Readiness Class, "The Learning Through Activity Programme", was a highlight of this time, as was offering related workshops around the province and country.

She continues to be involved in curriculum development and teacher-upgrade and presently lectures part-time in the B Ed programme at Varsity College.

"I think that teachers play such an important role in nurturing the intellectual and social development of children during their influential early years. The education that teachers pass on plays a key role in determining the future prospects of the children in their classes. I believe that teachers should provide the tools and the environment for children to develop into responsible adults."

"I strongly believe that pre-primary education is the core foundation for children's growth. It provides knowledge, skills and attitudes that influence the child’s long-term educational career. In being a teacher, I am able also to understand a child physically, emotionally and socially. Allowing children to express themselves and offering proper guidance will equip them for life-long learning. "

Tiny Majola
Tiny Majola
Orange Group/Grade R Teacher (5/6 year olds)
Personal Educational Philosophy
“The pre-primary environment is one in which children begin learning valuable life lessons in forming relationships. They learn sharing, loving and tolerance towards others’ behaviours. This is where they grow not only physically but also emotionally and spiritually. And, most importantly, they begin the process of intellectual development, as they start discovering the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will influence their on-going education.”

Tiny and St Martins
“I enjoy being a part of the St Martin’s team. We learn from each other and share in the experience of educating the children in our care. Our relationship is fruitful and purposeful but also with many a laugh.”

Training and Experience
“Previously, I studied part-time through Intec College and obtained an Early Childhood Certificate; this enabled me to teach 2/3 year old children in a nursery school for six years. I came to St Martin’s in 2011 and was teacher’s assistant in all three grades, Grade 000, Grade 00 and Grade R. In 2016, I registered with North-West University to study a B Ed (Foundation Phase). In 2019, on completion of my studies, I was given my own Grade R class. ”

Interests and Hobbies
“For me there is no greater joy than spending quality time with my two boys, Andile (Born 1999) and Wandile (Born 2001). I love being involved in their development and growth and sharing in their joy of achievement. For a little “me” time, a good book or comical movie does it.”

Significant Events/Achievements
“I began my working career as a domestic assistant in a nursery school. With determination, passion, hard work, and prayers, I obtained my ECD certificate and then my B Ed (Foundation Phase)! I want to share the importance of education in today’s world and create a love for learning in children from a young age.”


Simone Davids
Simone Davids
Orange Group/Grade R Teacher's Assistant (5/6 year olds)
Personal Educational Philosophy
“Children are curious and are always looking for answers about why things are the way they are. I believe that pre-primary education should allow children the freedom to explore, be creative and learn in the process. I believe that early childhood education guides, shapes and helps to grow young minds as they are exposed to the learning environment at an early stage. This gives pre-primary teachers the opportunity to help guide this process and equip learners with the fundamentals of education that they need for the future, as well as motivate and instil confidence in them by helping them build on their strengths.”

Training and Experience
“I have had the opportunity to work on a busy switchboard and in a call centre. I worked at a technical laminations company for 6 years and became a senior in my department. I was granted the opportunity to change and edit very important documents relating to ISO requirements. I was responsible for teaching and training new employees in my department. This has taught me patience, leadership skills and listening skills and it has motivated me to chase my true passion of teaching children.”

Interests and Hobbies
“Being a Mom myself, I love spending time with my son and a lot of my time is dedicated to his extra-curricular activities, such as karate and soccer. On a quieter note, I love reading and enjoy baking whenever I get the chance.”

Significant Events/Achievements
“Completing and getting awarded my Certificate for Generic Management (NQF Level 4).
My Certificate for ISO 9001:2015 for management.
Being accepted into Unisa to fulfill my true passion of teaching.
Being employed at St Martins Pre-Primary which will help me grow in my passion of teaching.”


Paola Nkomo

Blue Group/Grade 00 Teacher (4/5 year olds)
Personal Educational Philosophy
“Pre-primary school lays a foundation in all sectors of development for a child. This is where the child receives a holistic education. Children are given a chance to be children but at the same time receive appropriate guidance that will stimulate all the aspects of their nature, which will prepare them for their upcoming schooling years.”

Paola and St Martins
“It is an honour to work with the staff of St Martin’s Pre-Primary; being led by an incredible woman, who is passionate and naturally loves children, makes it worthwhile to be working in this environment. It is an environment that is close-knit and thrives on us all helping each other, as well developing one's skills.”

Training and Experience
“Paola has a Higher Certificate in Business Principles and Practice. She has also done a short course at Siyahlanganisa Centre for a certificate in HIV AIDS VCT-counselling. Paola received a Debate Certificate in high school.
In 2014, as an in-service student, Paola joined the St Martin’s staff as a teacher’s assistant. Paola completed her B Ed (Foundation Phase) studies in 2017 and then took up a position as a class teacher. ”

Interests and Hobbies
“I have a love for music and dance. I am a down-to-earth person who loves adventure and challenges. I enjoy reading, watching movies and socialising. I have a passion for engaging with children and just working or being around them brings joy to my heart. Helping them reach their full potential and possibly become great leaders, that is the joy of it all.”

Significant Events/Achievements
“One would be joining the worship team in my church. I have always had a love of working for God and being used by Him to bring about change and transformation, according to His Will.
The other would be becoming a Sunday school teacher, whereby all my talents, passions and interests come together...

Tayler Gild
Tayler Gild
Blue Group/Grade 00 Teacher’s Assistant (4/5 year olds)
Personal Educational Philosophy
“I am passionate about the development of young minds and growing children physically, emotionally, sociably and intellectually. Every child has their own individual personality and I believe that each individual should be able to express their own potential and strengths. I believe that a passionate, innovative and loving teacher has a vital role to play in the development of young minds; the earlier the better. I utilise my skills and creativeness to create a positive, fun and friendly environment in which optimal learning can take place. A pre-primary school is a place where learners should learn everything appropriate for later years but in a lively, stimulating way. Aiding and supporting learners who face barriers is a priority. I am inspired by children and my dream is to educate children in fun and creative ways. ”

Tayler and St Martins
“I feel honoured and blessed to become a part of the St Martin’s school family. Meeting and interacting with the staff members really made me feel like I was already part of this amazing, homely School. Everyone works together in creating an interactive, fun, creative environment and this has cemented my dream of being able to work in this team. The Christian ethos of this School is beautiful and I cannot wait to instil these morals and values into my teaching and learners. ”

Training and Experience
“I always knew that I wanted to work with children and develop them holistically in a fun and creative way. My dream was solidified after my numerous work and voluntary experiences at various schools, my practical teaching experiences during my degree as well as voluntary charity work. During my Matric’ year, I was a mentor for the Grade 000 class for which I received a Gold Level of Achievement. I completed my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Development: Foundation Phase) Degree in 2018 and I will be studying my Honours in Inclusive Education in 2019. I will be renewing my Level 1 first Aid Course in December 2018.”

Interests and Hobbies

I am a family person and spend a lot of time with my family and friends. I love experiencing new cultures and travelling within South Africa and around the world. I enjoy the outdoors and nature. On Sundays, I attend Church Services at my local Catholic Church.”

Significant Events/Achievements
“Completing my teaching degree has got to be my most prized achievement yet, because I know that this is just the beginning of my dream, I feel honoured to be a part of St Martin’s Pre-Primary, where I can grow as well as spread my knowledge. ”


Melanie Kendall-Ball

Green Group/Grade 00 (4/5 year olds)
Personal Educational Philosophy
“Pre-primary education should strive to develop the whole child, academically, socially and emotionally, so as to equip the child with the necessary skills to handle and cope with the transition to formal education. Early learning education should allow the child to feel safe and happy in a structured and nurturing environment.”

Melanie and St Martins
“I am very excited to be a member of the St Martin’s team. Teaching is and always has been my passion. There is nothing quite as rewarding as seeing growth, independence and skills development in these little people. It is a pleasure being under the headship of Barbie and having collegial relationships with the teachers.”

Training and Experience
“Melanie completed her Nursery School training in Harare, Zimbabwe and taught there from 2000 – 2007. On moving to South Africa, Melanie taught for a year at a pre-school in Johannesburg, before moving into the pharmaceutical industry for 4 years. Her passion for children and teaching never subsided and she returned to teaching in January 2015. Melanie is also a swimming teacher and has taught swimming since 1995. Melanie joined the St Martin’s staff in 2016. She teaches in the Grade 00 class, as well as drama as an extra-mural.”

Interests and Hobbies
“I am a keen runner and compete in local short-course races. Having lived in landlocked Zimbabwe and, subsequently, in Johannesburg, I love living by the “seaside”. I plan to try my hand at ocean sports and I am confident I will discover my new hobby in the waves.”

Significant Events/Achievements
“My greatest achievement would have to be observing my children grow from small children, survive the adolescent years and become the wonderful caring and capable adults that they are today.
Another significant event in my life was the opportunity to move from Johannesburg to Durban to experience a more laid-back lifestyle and be close to family and friends. Being blessed with working at St Martin’s.”


Sanele Blose
Sanele Blose
Green Group/Grade 00 Teacher’s Assistant (4/5 year olds)
Personal Educational Philosophy
“Education is powerful and absolutely necessary. Learning is a part of life that begins from the time we are children and continues till old age. As human beings we are always learning, be it in the classroom, at the local library or in the comfort of our sofa as we browse through the internet googling things that we find intriguing or questions we seek answers to; we also learn through life experiences. Education is an extension of that process of learning, exploring and expansion of the mind. Teachers offer support and guidance to the learners that help them become independent in doing things by themselves and in thinking for themselves. They also help them to love the process of learning, by creating a safe and welcoming environment, encouraging them, believing in them, gaining an awareness of their individual needs and embracing their uniqueness which ultimately sets them up for success.”

Sanele and St Martins
“St Martin's is simply awesome. The environment is warm and welcoming. It's the kind of school that I would recommend to parents, friends, family and acquaintances. The staff is friendly, committed and passionate. I am looking forward to growing at St Martin’s, as I learn from my colleagues and my leadership, the school principal. What an honour and a privilege to be a part of St Martin’s Pre-Primary School. ”

Training and Experience
“Sanele completed her undergraduate studies in 2014 at the University of Cape Town. She has a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English and Public Policy and Administration. She also has a Postgraduate Diploma in Education specializing in Foundation Phase Teaching, also from the University of Cape Town. Sanele worked as a First Additional Language Teacher (IsiZulu teacher) at SPARK Schools in 2018. She started at St Martin’s as an Assistant Teacher in January 2019.”

Interests and Hobbies
“Reading: I can't imagine my life without books or stories at least. I just love stories. Tea: tea goes hand-in-hand with reading, it also helps with relaxing and, when you're hungry, it really comes in handy to fill you up or it gives you the illusion that you are full, in any case it works and I love it! I am not talkative in my nature, I only talk a lot when I find a topic interesting and I like to laugh. Every now and again, I write short articles on my blog and I do book reviews. Sometimes I watch movies or a series. I also like to listen to music and attempt to write songs or sing the ones I know differently even though I have a terrible voice. I also like learning about life from other people.”

Significant Events/Achievements
“Starting my blog. I am so proud of myself. My blog is important to me because it reminds me that I have a voice and it matters. I am grateful for the 30 subscribers that I have and sometimes they comment when I put out a new post. It really makes my heart smile.
I am also grateful to be a part of St Martin's. It's been a short period but I have already learned some valuable things which will be beneficial in my career development. I am yet to learn more and I am eager and filled with gratitude.”

Nina and St Martin's

"We moved into the house right alongside to St Martin’s in 2012. Then I prayed for a job “next door”. A locum post came up in 2014 and the rest is history. It is wonderful being part of a dedicated bunch of teachers who work incredibly hard to nurture and care for the children."

"My education philosophy is to challenge students and watch them grow to their full potential. I want students to have freedom that allows for expression and creativity. Another goal is always to be objective, for example, if there is a need to correct a student’s behaviour, after the consequence has been fulfilled, I give the student a fresh start."

Personal Educational Philosophy
"I believe that the Foundation Phase plays a significant role in the development of every learner's future. It is critical that the base is thoroughly established. It is also vital that a teacher at this level of learning firmly understands this, due to the impressionable age of the learners."

Claire and St Martin's

"I am delighted to be a member of the vibrant and experienced staff at St. Martin's Pre-Primary School. I feel that their knowledge and passion are vital components, not only necessary for teaching pupils but also for the enrichment of each other. Although, the team at St. Martin's is small, it allows for a more intimate environment, which enables a closer teacher-child relationship to develop."

Training and Experience

From a young age, I have always been inclined to take part in activities that involved working with young children. During my school years, I became involved with caring for orphaned babies, which inspired my passion for teaching. My work experience has included working with infants right through to Grade R learners. I also completed two years of my Foundation Phase teaching practice in the Junior Primary School. In July 2012, I completed my Bachelor of Education Degree (Foundation Phase) and, in 2014, my B Hons in Inclusive Education. I started teaching at St Martin's during 2012.

"The Foundation Phase is exactly that, the phase in a child's life that sets the foundation for the rest of a child's academic career. The teacher, the child and the environment play a huge role in creating a positive and steadfast foundation. As an aspiring teacher, I believe that every child is different in their own way and that diversity should be embraced. Children should be encouraged to be creative and to be their authentic selves."

"Education is the most important fundamental step to a successful and better future. Just as a builder, when building a house, starts off by forming the foundation to be able to properly build the house into the mansion he wants it to be... Just like that, we, as teachers, act as the builders who form an educational foundation for children to grow into future leaders."

Senzekile and St Martin's
"It is such a privilege to be part of the St Martin’s family as I was welcomed with warm hands and warm hearts. I do believe that I will receive significant knowledge and gain unique experience as I work with the amazing St Martin’s team. I am blessed to be under the leadership of a God-fearing leader. "

Training and Experience
"As a young teenager, I always dreamed of having my own foundation which would have a home and an educational facility for under-privileged children, single mothers and teenage mothers. I want to help the youth to becoming aspiring leaders and help them achieve their dreams, even with the knowledge of not having funds to study, giving them the courage and support they need to stay off the streets and better their lives instead.

In school, I always loved sport activities and had a passion for coaching sport. Therefore, after Matric’, I studied Coaching Science from 2012 – 2013; I graduated and obtained a Coaching Science Diploma through ETA (Exercise Teachers’ Academy). Thereafter, I decided to study teaching in ECD/Foundation Phase through UNISA and graduated in 2018.

In the year of 2016 – 2017, I worked at Clifton Nottingham Road as a Foundation Phase student teacher, boarder mistress and sport coach for various sports.

I do wish to continue studying and want to obtain honors in Education Management, so that I can open that dream educational facility. "
