Our High School:
Our 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 academic support and enrichment programme provide personal structure and assistance to students who require additional help with their learning and empower students who are achieving to excel even further.
Additional programmes such as E-Days offer enriching and exciting teaching opportunities. Our life skills programme, KEYS – which stands for Knowledge and Enrichment for Your Success – helps students make responsible decisions and teaches them the skills they need to adapt and deal with the demands of life effectively.
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.
The cornerstone of any successful school lies in the quality of its teachers. Our empathetic, committed and passionate teachers are subject specialists in their field. They aim to maximise the potential of each student, whilst instilling a sense of pride, responsibility and integrity in their young lives.
At Marist Brothers Linmeyer we believe that such qualities are a catalyst for personal development and success. We believe that inculcating a sense of self-worth in the students, is key to our academic philosophy and underpins a broader preparation for life as a citizen of the world.
At the start of High School, students are encouraged to become actively involved in their learning process. By adopting a positive work ethic and a love for work, girls and boys are taught to take responsibility for their own academic growth and development.
Our school is blessed with dedicated specialist teachers who are committed to the development of the individual potential of each student. Academic support and enrichment programmes provide personal structure and assistance to students who require additional help with their learning, while empowering students who are committed to excelling even further.
We prepare students for the internationally recognised National Senior Certificate Examination (IEB), where Marist Brothers Linmeyer has consistently achieved excellent results. In addition to our unbroken 100% pass rate, most students achieve university entrance and go on to excel in their chosen careers, both locally and internationally.
We hope to encourage, inspire and empower students to flourish in every aspect of their young lives.

Grades 10 to 12 have an elective subject called Computer Application Technology (CAT). Information Technology offered to Grade 10 students, gives insight into how the digital world works in all career fields.

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.
Every Friday morning, students make sandwiches at school which are then delivered to Rosettenville Primary and shared among 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 and an annual monetary donation is made to Hospice. Other charities include Civvies days and 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.
