Principal's Desk




Mr Michael James Vermaak

Our principal, Mr Michael James Vermaak studied a BComm (Ed) at the University of Port Elizabeth, before embarking on his teaching career. He came to Victoria Park as a deputy principal in 1997, and was elected as principal in 2002.

Ever conscious of his role as principal and teacher, Mr Vermaak drives Victoria Park with passion - this is his favourite word.

He is an energetic and popular public-speaker, able to motivate adults and teens alike. He has the ability to hold the attention of thousands for what seems like an eternity for him - but not for his audience!

Our school is proud of our proudly Victorian principal.
