Adieu to Madame Racape

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that Madame Johana Racape, our wonderful French teacher, will be taking some time off this year to spend time with her family. She will be leaving us today and will return to St Stephen’s in 2021. In conjunction with that, we are very pleased to inform you that Madame Julie Penin will be taking over this teaching load for the rest of 2020. Madame Penin is already well known to our Primary students, as she has regularly joined us as relief teacher.

We truly wish Madame Racape all the best and look forward to her return next year.

Kind regards,

Hannah Lockwood-Jones and Jarrod Heglund


As part of our languages program, Duncraig will welcome a group of French exchange students on campus this February, giving our students and their visitors the chance to practise their language skills first-hand.

Due to the popularity of the program, there are still a few French students needing accommodation with host families. If you might be interested in welcoming one of the exchange students into your home between February 10 and 23, please contact Head of English & Languages Mr Howie Jakeway at
