New SHS Principal

The Sacred Heart Primary School on Saba this summer will have a new principal. Ildefon Verberne will be present at the school on June 1st, 2023.

Principal Verberne has educational experience in the Dutch Caribbean and has given several pieces of training in Aruba, Curaçao and Bonaire.  She has been working in education, as she stated, with “a lot of passion” for over 40 years as a kindergarten teacher, primary and special education teacher, remedial teacher, care coordinator, and director of several primary and special education schools.

She said in an introduction letter to the staff and parents that she was very excited about the school and working on Saba. “The cheerful children, the friendly people, and Saba’s beautiful nature. It made us feel at home.” She said it was always her dream to get a job in the Caribbean. Verberne is married and a mother of six children and nine grandchildren.
