About Claudette

Derek and Claudette Helberg are a mature married couple. Their children are grown up and left home. Derek is retired, loves cooking, woodwork, photography, social media and doing a barbecue. Claudette is an experienced and qualified teacher, mentor and facilitator

Derek and Claudette are also our Local Coordinators for the Gordons Bay and Somerset West areas. It’s quite a large area covering from Strand and Somerset West to Hermanus and up to the tip of Stellenbosh. They are kept busy recruiting host families; visiting our partner schools and ensuring everyone is happy! When we have Club 4 students, they take an active part with Claudette doing the teaching and Derek doing the excursions. Additionally, they oversee all Volunteer Programmes in that area which can be from the Cheetah Farm to teaching English in a local Township Infant School. Derek and Claudette immerse themselves in the English Programmes and are passionate about English and the welfare of all students in their area.
