About Christine McCleland

Owner Port Elizabeth


Christine has always had the desire to inspire people to fulfill their full God given potential. She has used her platform as a primary school teacher for the past 12 years to assist and guide the learners with the various challenges they face in today’s society. That inspired her to further her studies and complete her Honours Degree in Psychology as well as Life Coaching. She believes it’s vital to have the skills to equip learners to embrace the uniqueness of their own identities.

Becoming a mom herself, she quickly realised that not everything is in her control. The Girls-School courses offer to address these various issues, equipping our girls with values and morals, practical as well as social skills, in order to navigate their journey towards adulthood with confidence and with an authentic identity free of comparison.

Roald Dahl said: “Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world.” To her, it would be an absolute privilege and great responsibility to take hands with parents, unlock this power, and equip our beautiful girls to embrace life to the full without the restraint of insecurities holding them back. The world will be a better place indeed!
