House Mothers

Our House Mothers, Bonnie Schwarz and Alma Orr-Ewing, are responsible for pastoral care, comforting anyone who might be feeling a little homesick, looking after medication, and making sure that everyone goes to bed at a time commensurate with their age group.

They share a room in the centre of the residential accommodation, closest to the younger children, so are immediately on hand for any night-time problems.

Bonnie and Alma, both talented musicians, are highly competent and greatly loved by all the children. 2018 will be their third year as joint house mothers.
