Mrs Rika Kroon - Deputy Principal (Academic)

Mrs Kroon is herself a product of an all girls’ school – she matriculated from Hoër Meisieskool Hugenote in Gauteng before she went on to complete her teaching qualification and her Honours Degree in History at the former RAU.  In 2016, Mrs Kroon obtained an M-Ed from the University of Johannesburg and she is currently studying towards her PhD. 

“Being a teacher is not what I do,” explains Mrs Kroon, “it is much more.  It is simply who I am.”

One of what may today be quite a rare breed, Mrs Kroon is a ‘dyed in the wool’ teacher – she has taught for 33 years and, while she does not remember what it was that inspired her to choose this as a career, she is incredibly grateful that she did.  She loves working with teenagers and she regards being in a position to inspire them to achieve their best academically and personally as a privilege.  “Nothing compares to the thrill of teaching a successful lesson!” expounds Mrs Kroon enthusiastically.

Mrs Kroon's warm, generous nature is what strikes one first;  then her quirky sense of humour.  These – warmth, generosity and a sense of humour – are characteristics that have ensured that Rhenish opened her heart to Mrs Kroon and they will ensure that she both adds value and gains a great deal from her journey at Rhenish Girls’ High.
