Religion In The Preparatory School

Religious Education is a very important part of our school curriculum. We are a proudly Catholic School and celebrate being such in a variety of ways.

Celebrating With Our Own Chaplin

At our school, we are very blessed and honoured to have our own Chaplin, Fr. Thabo Mothiba (OMI). Having him around enables us to and the boys are able to have a chat with him whenever he has time available.

Building A Relationship With God

Our focus in R.E. is to develop boys spiritually and to encourage them to build a strong, healthy, loving relationship with God; as well as striving to become better people (through the Grace of God).

Developing Our Boys Holistically

Religious Education is a fundamental building block in the development of our children and thus is one of the four pillars in our school. All our pillars are interlinked and interconnected and together they develop a boy holistically.

A Proudly Catholic School

Religious Education is incorporated into our daily lives:

  • We start and end the day in prayer and the whole school comes to a standstill at 12h00 everyday to allow for the praying of the Angelus.
  • All classes attend R.E. lessons once a week, as well as hymn practice weekly.
  • We have First Friday Mass every month, where we celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
  • We offer Confession at least three times a week.
  • Mass is celebrated every day in the Oratory, where we can receive the Holy Eucharist.
  • Every term, each grade has a grade Mass, and there is an annual retreat for all the grades.
  • Special Feast Days are celebrated with a special Mass – Mother’s Day (Mary our Mother), Founders’ Day (St. Eugene de Mazenod), St. Benedict and St. Francis.
