Mr. E. Engelbrecht

With more than 20 years’ experience in education, Mr Etienne Engelbrecht has been with Vaalpark Articon High School since 2001.  He obtained his B.Sc degree from the University of the Free State in 1997 and his Higher Education Diploma from the North West University in 2001.  Under his care and guidance many learners have excelled in Physical Sciences.


Mr Engelbrecht is passionate about young people and he believes that a child who is constantly occupied by healthy, positive and productive activities will neither have the time nor the desire to become involved in negative behaviour.  For this reason he actively promotes participation in sport and being an accomplished discus athlete himself, he loves to coach and train learners on the sport field.


Since joining Vaalpark Articon in 2001, Mr Engelbrecht was promoted to Head of Department:  Physical Sciences and Mathematics in 2008 and he became Deputy Principal in 2010.  He was the acting principal in 2018 and in 2019 he was officially appointed as Vaalpark Articon’s new school principal.


With his guidance, leadership and motivation the school, its learners and its staff are able to excel in all their endeavors – making Vaalpark Articon THE SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE.
