Oatlands Development Trust
The Oatlands Development Trust was registered in June 2012, with the main objective of generating funds, through special events and donations from companies and individuals, for the development of the educational facilities and activities of Oatlands Preparatory School. The board of trustees comprises three past parents: Dr Sizwe Mabizela, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Rhodes University, Mr Peter Sülter, a land surveyor, township planner and property consultant and Mr Pradeep Ranchhod, a local businessman; and current parent, Ms Denese Palm, a property consultant with many years of experience in product creation and marketing. The present principal, Mrs Rosaria de la Mare completes the team.
The trustees bring their specialized skills to the table, together with a passion for education, a strong belief in the ethos of the school and a desire to support the Governing Body, parents and staff to fulfil their dream of providing quality education to at least sixty pupils per grade from Grade R to Grade 7.
