Next Generation Excellence In Holistic Education

Overstrand Edu-Centre is a Cambridge-aligned education centre combining middle and higher grades in Betty’s Bay. A dedicated faculty includes teachers and staff committed to providing high-quality education with Wingu and Evolve online schooling platforms. Small class sizes mean that learners at Overstrand Edu-Centre receive personalised attention and support. Overstrand Edu-Centre believes in the importance of in-person instruction, which is why students are required to attend school every day. However, if the need arises, Overstrand Edu-Centre has an online learning option to ensure students can continue to learn remotely. In addition to academic excellence, Overstrand Edu-Centre offers a variety of sports and extramural activities. Encouraging a passion for learning and discovery, Overstrand Edu-Centre strives to nurture and self-motivate each learner to reach their full potential.

Cheryl Gleeson-Baird - Director of Education

“I have been in education for over 34 years and am as passionate about it as I was when I started. 

I believe in an all-around approach, developing not only the children's academic abilities but helping them to blossom emotionally and spiritually, ready to face life’s challenges. I am fair but firm when dealing with discipline. I use a values-based methodology to encourage children to become independent, responsible, and respectful towards others, their work and their daily lives. I have always encouraged children to reach their potential by setting attainable goals and believing in themselves. 

I am a positive individual and enjoy a good challenge. In my downtime, I like to read, mosaic and paint. I am married to Glenn and have two children, Calum and Nina. We have five dogs who all are part of the family.”

Michelle Simon-Kuhn - Senior Facilitator

“My education journey began over a decade ago in South Korea, where I taught English at an elementary school. I am very passionate about children’s learning and about making sure how our children learn matches the technology of our time. 

I enjoy working and interacting with children of all ages and supporting them through their learning experiences, social and life interactions. I am currently studying towards a diploma in education. 

I am also a fully-qualified Pilates teacher. I run the fitness programme and drama classes at the Edu-Centre.”

Jade Alves - Intern

Jade is studying teaching through UNISA, so being at the centre gives her valuable classroom experience. 

Currently, Jade facilitates the junior class. Her patience and kindness are evident in her interactions with the children. She works through concepts with them and sometimes assists senior children with their work.

Jade has several passions, including chess and sport. She has introduced the centre’s sports programme, which the children thoroughly enjoy. The children have grown in their chess skills through her guidance and expertise. Jade has entered them into chess tournaments, where they have done well.



The centre has three groups (classes) with English as a first language and Afrikaans as a second.

Divided into Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors, the children can do Cambridge-accredited levels or the IEB curriculum. Some of the older seniors also do the CAPS curriculum. 

Through the online platforms, learners are well-prepared for their examinations. They receive all the necessary assistance and support from the online and Edu-centre teachers.
