First Day

It wasn’t just the first day of school for the students of Hoërskool Waterkloof but also the first day for new principal Mr. Chris Denysschen so he made an entrance…


Talking about making a great first impression! Mr. Chris Denysschen jumped from a plane and landed on the sports field in front of all his new school students. The daring principal joined the school to celebrate not only the first day of the new year, but also a celebration of the schools 40th year.

Jacaranda’s Martin Bester was at the school to watch the epic landing and welcoming of the new school year. Martin shared the video on his Breakfast Show Facebook page this morning.

Landing to a James Bond soundtrack, Mr. Denysschen has set the bar pretty high for any principal that comes after him. Facebook users loved his bravery and creativity. The video has reached nearly 10,000 views at the time of writing this and it just keeps climbing.
