The Beatons are unbeatable

Is it something in the Beaton household diet, or something in their tap water, one may wonder.

The Beaton sisters from Durbanville, Michaela (17) and Chloe (12), have both taken the reins as head girl of Durbanville Primary School – Michaela in 2014 and this year, Chloe.

Their father, Karl Beaton, thinks it is a combination of their upbringing and how the school develops talent and teaches its children. “My wife, Candy, and I have always taught them that leadership is serving others with a humble heart and positive attitude. The girls have been brought up in a Christian home, but with a huge dose of reality,” he said.

“It is also a direct reflection on how the school develops talent and teaches our children. We have been blessed to have been able to send our children to this school,” he said.

Michaela, currently a matric learner at Rhenish Girls’ High School in Stellenbosch, has been the Dux learner from Grade 1 until now. She also has Western Province colours for triathlon and XCM mountain biking, as well as junior SA colours for cross-triathlon. She was also selected for the SA team to take part in the world cross-triathlon competition in Spain, but due to the costs, her parents decided against it. Chloe has achieved academically and played for her school’s first hockey team since Grade 6. “Michaela is looking at being a physiotherapist or prosthetist and Chloe is not sure – right now she wants to be a primary school teacher,” their father said.
