Our beloved colleague, Mrs Cornelia Willoughby, also fondly known as Connie, Aunty Connie, Juffrou Willoughby and Miss Willoughby, has journeyed to her eternal rest. Her legacy is truly: the indelible influence of a great educator holds immeasurable value.

Unassuming, compassionate and always gracious, Mrs Willoughby was the consummate educator; always ready to offer support and a listening ear. Her love for the learners of Excelsior, is evidenced in the heartfelt sentiments expressed at the occasion of her retirement in 2022. She would always advocate for learners who were troubled and win them over with her warm personality.

Mrs Willoughby's sparkling sense of humour, her positivity despite the challenges, and her sagely advice, have been a wonderful blessing in our staffroom. Her accomplishments as an educator cannot be expressed in words. Her commitment to Excelsior and the values she espoused have been inspirational to all whose lives she touched.

We, the teaching and non-teaching staff of Excelsior, mourn the loss of our dear friend.

We extend our sincere condolences to her family.
May God be your comfort and your strength in the difficult days to come.


Dear School Staff and Learners

It is with profound sadness that the Representative Council of Learners (RCL) writes to express our deepest condolences on the passing of the beloved Mrs. C. Willoughby.

Mrs Willoughby was more than just a teacher; she was a mentor, a guide, and a shining light in the lives of countless learners. Her dedication, passion, and love for education inspired us all, and her absence leaves a void that can never be filled.

We remember her warm smile, her infectious laughter, and her unwavering commitment to our growth and success. She had a way of making each of us feel seen, heard, and valued, and her impact on our lives will never be forgotten.

As we mourn the loss of this extraordinary educator, we take comfort in the memories we shared with her. We will cherish the lessons she taught us, both in and out of the classroom, and strive to honor her legacy by living the values she instilled in us: kindness, compassion, and a love for learning.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs Willoughby's family, friends, and all those who loved her. May they find strength and solace in this difficult time.

Rest in peace, dear Mrs. Willoughby. Your legacy will live on in our hearts forever.

The Representative Council of Learners (RCL)

The Excelsior Secondary Gr. 12 team, lead by Mr Phillip van Rooyen, express their thanks and appreciation to the group of ex-Matriculants of 1989 (in particular Gr. 12B) for taking their time to come and plough back (reinvest) in their Alma Mater. This group of 5 ex-learners made a concerted effort on Monday 21 August to address the Matriculants of 2023, advising them on planning ahead for the forthcoming Matric exams. They also emphasized the importance of further studies to better your qualifications and improve your career prospects. They furthermore confirmed their support to any matriculant who should need assistance in applying for tertiary education.
