What the school says
“Since 1941, St David’s Marist Inanda has, in the Marist ethos, been a place of both teaching and learning; a place where children receive the benefits of an education at a school whose strength and history afford every child the opportunity to achieve his full potential, to find both roots and wings. Each boy is encouraged to develop his own special talents and achieve excellence in our core areas of Academics, Culturals, Leadership, Service or Sport. We believe that our boys leave us with the values and skills needed to make a meaningful contribution to their families and to society.”
The school is in Rivonia Road, in the heart of Sandton, near the Hyde Park and Sandhurst areas.
From the chief executive
“St David’s is a Catholic, Marist school with close to 1,200 boys from all faiths. From Grade 00 to Matric these young men receive a solid grounding in the classroom, the sports fields and in the cultural arena. The extensive work that our boys and teachers undertake outside of our walls, some 25 outreach projects, is the manifestation of the Marist ethos prevalent at St David’s. We count many of South Africa’s leading men as alumni of St David’s. We are proud of their achievements as they are proud of their links with our school. I look forward to welcoming you to St David’s.”
– Mr Mike Greeff, Chief Executive
