About our School

 

SJMC believes in educating the whole person and recognises that humans have spiritual physical, intellectual and emotional sides to them - all of which is taken into account in the curriculum followed at the school. The policy of inclusion is clearly visible through the school's Special Needs Unit available on the campus.

 

The school was a pioneer of open schooling in the apartheid era in 1976. Once a white, boys-only senior school, SJMC has evolved over the years into an exciting multi-cultural, fully co-educational institution extending from Pre-school to Grade 12. Today the school's peaceful and constructive atmosphere bears testimony to the vision of its earlier leadership - and to the hope inherent in the new South Africa. Learners at St Joseph's Marist College work and play in a setting that reflects the real world.

 

Belonging to the Marist family ensures that the school is kept in touch nationally with the four other Marist schools. Internationally we are one of 800 Marist schools located in 76 countries.The sound attitudes of St Marcellin Champagnat (founder of the Marist Order) are central to all the school does.

 

Special Needs Unit: The Special Needs Unit (SNU) consists of a group of 18 learners aged from 12 - 20 years, who have a variety of learning needs.
