About Us

Con Spirito Eisteddfod was founded in 2003 by Lizelle van Staden and Zabé Jonker on the East Rand.  They saw a need to identify and develop less gifted children's talents as well and to offer them a platform where they can express their talents. 

They believe that kids talents need to be developed, regardless of their skill level.  Each child is seen as an individual and each child is treasured during their Eisteddfods.  Con Spirito offers a platform where each child can develop his/her talents in a save and friendly environment, with personalised feedback to help them further develop and grow.

Creating a love for arts and culture is our passion and we want kids to share this love.

Ontmoet Lizelle

Lizelle van Staden

Lizelle is 'n oud-onderwyseres met passie vir die kunste, kultuur en Afrikaans!

Sy het in 1980 by Windhoek Hoërskool gematrikuleer en het daarna onderwys in Pretoria studeer. Sy het vir 10 jaar onderwys gegee maar tree in 2005 uit die onderwys uit om haar liefde vir kultuur te gaan najaag.

Vanaf 2005 tot 2017 is sy aktief betrokke by die ATKV as landswye Redenaars- en Debatsorganiseerder vir skole, asook die ATKV-Universiteitedebat. ‘n Passie wat sy vandag nog volgehou voorsit deur haar betrokkenheid asook beoordeling van redenaars kompetisies by skole.

Tydens haar onderwysjare het sy ook verskeie laerskool junior- en seniorkore asook revues afgerig. Sy stig die ATKV-Animato Koorkompetisie (nie-skool kore) en het dit vir 10 jaar saam met die ATKV bedryf.

Tans is sy die direkteur en stigter van die nasionale Animato A Capella Sangkompetisie wat op Stem Saam op Via TV-Kanaal uitgesaai word.

In 2003 het haar passie vir die kunste en kultuur daartoe gelei dat sy die Con Spirito Kunswedstryd stig waarvan sy tans die enigste direkteur is. Hierdie kunswedstryd vind jaarliks landswyd plaas by skole.

Lizelle is ook huidiglik ‘n deeltydse musiekonderwyseres en kerkorreliste in haar vrye tyd.
