Adriaan joined the Oamaru Intermediate School team in 2016 after teaching in South Africa for more than 20 years.
He completed his studies as a teacher at the University of Pretoria. Adriaan has taught both Year 7 and 8 classes at Oamaru Intermediate.
Although he is South African he is now feeling much more like a Kiwi than a Springbok! Adriaan has really settled into Oamaru life and is here to stay, though he does disappear in the school holidays with his wife and three daughters, to explore the beauty of this wonderful country.
Adriaan has a passion for education, as well as sport and the outdoors.
