AFTER diligently serving the school for almost two decades, Ernst van Biljon, principal of Sir Pierre Van Ryneveld High School, will retire at the end of April.

Van Biljon has not only served the school for 19 years, but the entire community of Kempton Park and Tembisa.

Born in Port Elizabeth, Van Biljon grew up in Pretoria. He obtained a Higher Education Diploma and Bachelor of Education Degree from the University of Pretoria.

He started teaching woodwork and metalwork in 1980 and came to Sir Pierre in 1984 as the extramural activities teacher.

In 1988 he was appointed deputy principal for Western High School in Mayfair, Johannesburg. Two years later he became principal at Malvern High School, a position he occupied for seven and a half years.

Van Biljon came back to Sir Pierre in 1997 as headmaster.
