“I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be joining the Roedean community as Executive Director. The privilege of joining an enduring bastion of excellence such as Roedean is one I don’t take for granted.

“We look forward to the valuable contribution Mrs Dlamini will make as she works with our Roedean staff, PTA, SAORA and most importantly our students. We welcome and wish Mrs Dlamini and her family a happy and long time at our remarkable school. The board looks forward to working with her and the EXCO teams to drive the strategic vision and ensure Roedean’s place as a leading global private school.”
