It is with pride that Department Head Hans Kuilder from the Caribbean Netherlands part of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (RCN/OCW) transfers the management of this department to Reynolds (Nolly) Oleana.
Nolly Oleana has been working for RCN/OCW since May 2011, in the last two years as the Deputy Head. From a selection procedure with candidates from the European as well as the Caribbean Netherlands, Nolly emerged as the best candidate for this position. Nolly is a well-known person in the education field on the islands. He started his career as a teacher of Mathematics and Chemistry at the Scholengemeenschap Bonaire (SGB), where he subsequently held various management positions. During the period in which he was politically active, he held the position of Minister of Education for the Dutch Antilles and Commissioner of Education for Bonaire. OCW is convinced that, considering his ample knowledge of education and his broad network, Nolly is the right person to further steer the department in its contribution to the realisation of the improvement trajectories in Caribbean Netherlands education.
