Maritzburg Prep starts tomorrow

2014-06-30 00:00

AFTER a partnership of more than seven years the junior campus of the Maritzburg Christian School will be going it alone as the Maritzburg Preparatory School.

Principal Brett Mouton said the schools had originally been separate entities but joined forces to underline their ethos to provide Christian education in the city.

The Maritzburg Christian School senior campus had also been in need of extra space and the junior school helped ‘take the pressure off’ when they went into partnership.

Maritzburg Christian School, which is open to pupils in grades four to 12, will continue to operate from its Topham Road premises, while the newly named Maritzburg Prep, which is for children in grade RR to grade three, will be based at the NCF Church campus at 498 Alexandra Road Extension.

Mouton said the changes, which come into effect from tomorrow, would clear up any ambiguity in terms the school’s status and with respect to the paperwork required by the Department of Education in KwaZulu-Natal.

“It’s quite an exciting move for us and a positive step forward,” Mouton said. “We remain hugely grateful to the partnerships we have had and to the guys we have worked with.”
