Meet the Enrolment Team
Vuyi Gwala – Receptionist and Transport Co-ordinator
Besides the friendly security guards at the McKenzie Gates and the grinning Hilton Boys who will wave at you as you drive past, Vuyi is the first person you’ll meet when visiting Hilton College. Her warm smile has been welcoming prospective families to the school for the past 4 years. She is a true “people person” and loves meeting new families. Vuyi has a great relationship with the boys at Hilton. You will often find a bunch of boys crowded around her desk at tea time and after school talking to her about almost anything! She really is a valued member of the Hilton College family. In addition to manning the Reception desk, Vuyi also coordinates the transport for staff and boys. She can be contacted on email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org or 033 383 0100.
Kirsty Foster – Enrolment Partner
Kirsty joined the team in January 2019 after living abroad for almost 20 years. She spent 4 years heading up the very busy Admissions Department of a prestigious international school in Singapore before returning to South Africa with her family. Kirsty sent her son, who is currently in Grade 10, to Hilton College whilst still living overseas and therefore has a keen empathy for families who are contemplating boarding school for their sons. Kirsty spends a large part of her time travelling, connecting with prospective families across South Africa and other parts of the world. She is a firm believer in everything that Hilton College stands for – her passion for the school is contagious! Kirsty is your first port of call should you have any questions about the enrolment process. She can be reached on email@example.com or +27 82 557 1280.
Trish Davidson – Enrolment Administrator
Trish has been a loyal and valuable member of the team for over 11 years. Not only is she the mum of three grown-up boys, she is also a doting grandmother to three beautiful grandchildren. Trish therefore understands how hard it can be to make difficult decisions about what is best for your children. She will help to make the administrative process as smooth as possible in order to lessen the burden somewhat. Trish will also assist in arranging your visits to the school. She can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or +27 33 383 0100. Please also let her know if you need to update your contact details.
Maralyn Atkins – Marketing Manager
Maralyn has been a long-standing member of the Marketing team at Hilton College. She joined Hilton over 14 years ago and is passionate about the school. Nothing brings Maralyn more joy than seeing a slightly nervous, somewhat uncertain Grade 8 boy flourish into a confident yet humble Grade 12 gentleman ready to take on the world! Maralyn is here to guide new families through the onboarding process and support them throughout the years that their boys are with us. She can be reached on email@example.com or +27 82 573 0221.
Pete Storrar – Director of Marketing
Back in 2017, Pete had no idea that he would end up working at Hilton College – but after meeting a unique headmaster, enthused staff and inspired boys he became desperate to be part of the next chapter in Hilton’s remarkable journey. He hasn’t encountered any educational institute in the world that gives boys the range of experiences and perspectives that Hilton College does. For boys to fully take advantage of these opportunities, however, it is Pete’s view that there needs to be a fit between the value and characters of the school and those of the prospective Hilton boy and his family. As a father of two boys himself, he knows that all young people are unique and what is right for one, might not be right for another. You will therefore not hear him sell the virtues of the school, but rather tell the Hilton story and give you a sense of the place. Feel free to get in touch with him at any stage if you have any questions about who we are as a school and where we are going (firstname.lastname@example.org or +27 66 302 3869).
