At Marist Brothers Linmeyer we aim to provide a holistic education. A vital component of this is the development of the cultural life of the learner and the wider community.
The ability to communicate effectively and confidently is an essential life skill. At Marist Brothers Linmeyer we provide opportunities for our learners to engage in Public Speaking Competitions, both externally and internally.
Chess is offered from Grade 1 to Grade 7. In the Foundation Phase, the game is introduced in a fun way using fewer chess pieces. Juniors are coached once a week to develop basic chess, memory and planning skills. They play games against each other, with some friendly matches against other schools.
At Intersen level, more intensive coaching, also once a week, encourages strategising, decision-making and concentration. Matches are played against both local schools and other ISASA schools.
The Marist Primary School Choir consists of learners ranging from Grade 3 to Grade 7. The Choir leads the singing at assemblies and masses and often represents the school at various festivals throughout the year. This talented group of singers plays a crucial role at the First Holy Communion and at the annual Name Day Mass.
Every year the Marist Primary School undertakes a production, alternating between the Intersen and Foundation Phases, in which every child participates. Every third year, a Musical Production involving learners from Grade 3 to Grade 7 is produced.
Learners ranging from Grade 00 to Grade 7, participate in the annual Southern Festival of Arts. Items performed include poetry, dramatised poetry, reading, choral verse, singing, dance, art and many more.
