Teacher of the Nations focuses on the arts. Specifically, we seek to introduce children to the beauty and intellectual stimulus of music. In South Africa, music is not a mandatory course, so few students, not enrolled in privileged schools, have access to music programs. Through our weekly programs, music camps, and concerts, we bridge this gap. Visiting and resident music teachers and professionals from all over the world have lent their talent and expertise to our misssion.
On Fridays, the girls make music with Christine Reurink. Both the older girls and younger girls enjoy their time singing praise and worship. As a trained music teacher from Holland, Christine has worked diligently in our music programs in Avian Park and Riverview, teaching piano, guitar, and voice.
At Chip Ross, singer-song-writer, Phil Adewumi, leads worships and instructs selected children in piano.
