Marist Brothers Linmeyer is an independent school established in terms of Section 45 of the South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 read together with Section 29 (3) of the Constitution.
Marist Brothers Linmeyer is a co-educational school based on Catholic ethos and values. The School welcomes all students regardless of race, national or ethnic origin, to all rights, privileges, programmes and activities generally accorded to students at the school, subject to the various criteria set out herein.
While The School does not discriminate on religious grounds in terms of admission, it is expected that those students who are enrolled at The School attend various religious activities specific to the Catholic faith which is practised at The School. These include assembly, mass, religious classes and the celebration of the various feast days. However, students of other faiths will not be required to worship during these activities.
Education provided by The School is holistic and does not focus purely on academics. All students are therefore required to participate in at least one extra-mural activity of their choice each term.
