About Our School
Marist Brothers Linmeyer is a Catholic School offering education from Grade PR to Grade 12. Our school was founded in France by St Marcellin Champagnat in 1817 and has over two centuries of experience in the ﬁeld of holistic education. Our educational environment is founded on creativity and innovation and fosters engaged critical thinkers with excellent problem-solving skills. By establishing a love for lifelong learning, self-direction and ongoing personal development, we fuel our students' entrepreneurial and philanthropic spirits. Our focus on social responsibility and cultural and environmental awareness means that they become ethical citizens of the world, committed to changing it for the better.
The early years are critical for your child's intellectual, emotional and physical development, and our every action keeps this in mind. Our learning methods and equipment are stimulating, creative, interactive and, where relevant, digital. Age-appropriate Religion lessons are also incorporated into our curriculum. High School years are a time of incredible growth and transformation. Over a relatively short period of time, they nurture and fine-tune their passions, personalities and ways of interacting with the world. During this time, we believe that it's our responsibility to create a safe and enabling environment in which your child feels supported to become the person they are meant to be. At Marist Brothers Linmeyer, your child's school years are not simply the foundation for their lives, but a launch pad for their futures.
Our Marcellin Jubilee Centre houses our Aquatic and Music Centre. The heated 25m pool, only 1m deep, serves as the perfect facility to sustain our 'Learn-to-swim' programme for juniors during the year and assists selected top swimmers with their winter training programme. A variety of musical elements such as Piano, Guitar and Drumming etc. are available in our Music Centre.
A wide range of extra-currciular activities are available to suit every interest and ability and our Learn-to-Swim pool ensures that every child feels safe and comfortable in the water. Our community outreach programmes are introduced to our children from Pre-School onwards. In this way, we help to grow young hearts, minds and bodies.
During the Reception Phase, students are introduced to initial swimming skills by one of our Pre-School teachers who is a fully-qualified swimming teacher. Although no official school sports are offered in the reception phase, we do offer Play-ball, Golf, Pottery, Art, Ballet, Tennis and Active Kids.
Cricket, Swimming, Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, Girls' Soccer, Netball, Archery and Table Tennis.
Archery, Athletics, Basketball, Cricket, Cross Country, Golf, Hockey, Netball, Rugby, Soccer, Squash, Swimming, Tennis and Water Polo.
Each grade in the Pre-School and Primary School selects an outreach project for the year. We encourage our students to become active participants and to support their chosen outreach programme. This is completed in the hope that, by the end of Primary School, an increased awareness of the world around them will be created and that the importance of their contribution later in life will become evident.
In High School, we encourage our students to get involved in community projects. A long-standing outreach initiative, the Co-workers, visits orphanages, old age homes and shelters on a regular basis and strives to improve the situation of the people they come into contact with, by supplying food, clothing and Christmas gifts. In addition to sharing our resources, these projects help the students to grow and feel a sense of accomplishment and pride within themselves.
