MARIST BROTHERS LINMEYER

A MARIST BROTHERS LINMEYER
HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

The High School’s stimulating and nurturing educational environment is founded on creativity and innovation and fosters engaged critical thinkers with excellent problem-solving skills.

Our empathetic, committed and passionate teachers are subject specialists in their fields. With various subject combinations, our expansive, yet traditional, curriculum continues to produce creative and accomplished individuals, year after year. Our commitment to excellence is further validated by our excellent IEB matric results and our exceptionally high tertiary successes.

All students have access to state-of-the-art facilities such as interactive whiteboards and fully networked computer centres.

Extra-curricular activities are important for the development of a healthy body and mind. We also have multiple outreach programmes in place and every student is involved in helping those less privileged.

Various educational tours take place during the year. These supplement the curriculum and add extra value to each learning area.

We are proud of every student who graduates from Marist Brothers Linmeyer and who confidently and maturely embraces the opportunities and challenges that lie beyond our School gates.

AN EDUCATION WITH A FUTURE IN MIND

“You have learned some very valuable life skills as a result of adversity. You have become more resilient, learned how to adapt, become more disciplined and hopefully become more appreciative of the simple things in life that are free.”

Mr Gary Norton

High School Principal

“I started in Grade 8 in 2021. In the beginning, I was very apprehensive, but after a few months, High School felt like home. Students have a sense of independence, yet support is always available from our teachers.”

Dario Gouveia, Grade 8

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Co-curricular activities foster commitment, confidence and create a sense of belonging to the School community. Students are encouraged to participate in at least one extra-curricular activity per term.

Developing well-rounded students inside and outside of the classroom

We offer a wide range of sports and cultural activities.

SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

Our Religious Education programme is designed to suit the needs of our students as part of the secular society in which we all live. We uphold the Christian teachings of the Gospel within a Catholic Marist tradition of: Humility, Simplicity and Modesty.

Spiritual education is provided via the formal curriculum as set out by the Catholic Schools Office and the Catholic Institute of Education. Students take part in daily Bible readings and morning prayers, monthly school Masses and have the opportunity for termly confession with our school chaplain. Various feast days and liturgical events (Ash Wednesday, Champagnat Day, Name Day etc.) are also celebrated.

Preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation is offered to Catholic learners in accordance with diocesan policy.

All faiths and denominations are welcomed and valued at our school. We nurture values which are accepted by people of faith and moral fibre.

Marist Brothers Linmeyer provides students with a sound spiritual foundation on which to base their daily lives.

OUTREACH

On Fridays, our Co-workers visit old age homes, less-fortunate schools and homes for disabled adults and children. Collections for the St Vincent de Paul Society are also dropped off.

The Bread Buddies initiative every Friday morning involves students making sandwiches at School that are then delivered to Rosettenville Primary and shared amongst the children. On Youth Day, we organise a fun-filled carnival day jam-packed with activities, delicious eats and treats for Lerato School.

Outreach drives include the collection of pet food for animal shelters. Other charities include Civvies days and a Sprayathon. Marist Brothers Linmeyer also supports seasonal collections as well as Junior Council requests.

We are always grateful for the difference our Marist families are making in the lives of those less fortunate.
