House Mothers

Bonnie and Alma

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. 2017 will be their third year as joint house mothers.
