School: Holy Family College
In 1905 Rev Mother Ambrose Farren founded Parktown Convent for Girls in the countryside outside of Johannesburg. Its learners included both boarders and day scholars. As the city of Johannesburg expanded, it eventually followed the school into the area, known as Parktown.

In 1985 after eighty years of commitment and service to the school, the Holy Family Sisters, handed over the task of strengthening the Christian values and education of young ladiesŁ to Catholic and other interested lay professionals, and the parent community.

In 1991, Parktown Convent School became Holy Family College, a co-educational school for girls and boys from Grade 0 to Matric.┬ While the Christian values and academic traditions of Parktown Convent have been continued, the school continues to transform itself in order to reflect a progressive vision of Catholic education in South Africa.
