Welcome to

Beccy's Home Page

I was born in Ixopo and grew up in Pietermaritzburg and Grahamstown. I was educated at St John's School, DSG and Rhodes University, where I did a BA(Hons) in English. I have been living and working as a programmer in Johannesburg since 1995. More recently I have completed my Project Management Professional certification, and a PGCE (teaching diploma) through UNISA. I have three children, Alexander, Sophie and Finnian.


My children and I all sing in the choir of St Martin's-in-the-Veld, and love attending the RSCM Summer Schools. I recently restarted violin lessons after a 3-year hiatus. I'm in Book 4 of the Suzuki method.

Other choirs I have sung in:

My other hobbies include running the M-Parenting mailing list and ParentSIG group, baking, creating dress-up outfits for kids, camping, photography, teaching and learning, knitting and (once upon a time and once again in the future) genealogy.
