Yellowwoods School Council would like to wish Ignus and Lisa Potgieter a very warm welcome to Yellowwoods School. Ignus matriculated in 1990 at the now Adelaide Gymnasium and thereafter completed his national service. In 1993 he did a years’ evangelising as part of a SCA team that performed drama and various other activities at schools throughout the East Rand. This is where he met his wife Lisa and they were married in 1996. Ignus then furthered his theological studies through correspondence and after completion accepted the position as Adelaide Presbyterian Church pastor. He completed a degree in counselling at this time and together with Lisa started a counselling practice with the South African Council for Counsellors. Ignus’s involvement in business started when he became a SEDA accredited service provider in the implementation of quality management systems at various business entities. This new direction led to a position as project manager at Selectra , a sustainable solutions implementation company with its headquarters in Johannesburg. Ignus has travelled all over the country over the last ten years, implementing projects at a variety of businesses. His passion for people and the call to return to his roots has led to the start of a new adventure as School Administrator of Yellowwoods Preparatory School. Council is very pleased to have Ignus on board and we wish his family many happy years of association with Yellowwoods School.
