It is with sadness that we share the heartbreaking news of the passing of Mrs. Ingrid Adolph, a previous long-serving Afrikaans Educator at Wynberg Girls’ High School.

Mrs. Ingrid Adolph was Head of the Afrikaans Department from 2004 and retired at the end of 2021, after 17 years of teaching at Wynberg Girls’ High School.

Mrs. Adolph was a passionate teacher and leader, and her knowledge of the Afrikaans language was extensive. She will always be remembered for her love of literature and ability to make a novel, short story or poem come “alive” in her class. Her caring nature and genuine love for both her students and colleagues will always be remembered, as well as her lovely sense of humour.

Mrs. Adolph exemplified the Wynberg values of Inclusivity, Integrity, Courage, Accountability, Respect, and Empathy. She will be missed dearly by all who had the honour of knowing her.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this very difficult time.
