Immaculata High School
About our School
Immaculata was founded in January 1947, out of a need to provide Catholic high school education for the students graduating from St Augustine's primary school in Wittebome. It was founded and managed by Dominican sisters, and to this day still carries a strong Dominican influence and Christian ethos. Sr Henrietta Riordan was the first principal. The school received its namesake after the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Although originally a co-ed school, Immaculata became a girls only school when it was recommended by the General of the Domincan Order in Ireland that the genders be taught separately.
The student body now comprises of 520 students and 21 educators. Subjects offered include: English, Afrikaans (FAL), isiXhosa (FAL), Mathematics, Maths Literacy, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Tourism, Business Studies,
Accounting and Computer Applications Technology.
Immaculata excels in music and drama, and has won many accolades.
Immaculata aspires to provide a learning environment in which their students are encouraged and empowered to become Women of Worth.
