Dear Gail

Greetings, gratitude and congratulations,

… this note is so long overdue but it comes with deep appreciation and admiration for the work of Mountain View Academy.

Thank you … it was a privilege for me to be part of the Annual Awards Evening of the School.

It was a transforming and informing experience for me. I saw with new insight, what a powerful symbol your school has become in our society.

You have created an environment where learners across the demographic spectrum of South Africa learn together to form community, in which academic excellence and human challenges combine to give everyone the opportunity to flourish in an atmosphere, without damaging competitiveness … at least that is what I experienced being in your midst.

So encouraging … and heart warming

Thank you too, for the very generous Book Token I received.


With every good wish

Yours sincerely,


The Rt. Revd R.B.V. Hess

The Bishop of Saldanha Bay
