Our Principal

Dee Cawcutt, Principal, Wynberg Girls' Junior School

A passionate and dedicated educationalist, Dee Cawcutt has been principal of WGJS since 2010.

Having shared her experience and passion for growing young minds at many schools across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Mauritius, Mrs Cawcutt, together with the WGJS team, is strongly committed to the philosophy that each child is unique – and should be given the opportunity to explore and develop their unique strengths and talents.

In 2004, Mrs Cawcutt received a national award for Most Improved School in Racial Integration. She is also a founding board member of Help2Read (NGO) – a volunteer organization with 533 volunteers assisting over 1339 learners in 116 schools in the Western Cape.

“The team at WGJS believes that excellence in teaching is one of the most important influences on a learner’s achievements. By building solid, nurturing relationships with your daughters we are able to equip them with the best life and academic skills possible.

At the heart of the school is our unique sense of community. We firmly believe in fostering partnerships with our families and their special daughters.”

“Our girls are encouraged to embody our values: To be Respectful, Reliable, Proactive, Aware, Persistent and Resilient.”
