About our School,

marist linemeyermarist linemeyer

Our school motto is “Certum Pete Finem”; this is Latin for, “Seek a definite goal”. If you want to become successful in life, you must have a definite goal — where you want to go, what you want to become, where you want to see yourself in the future. A definite goal will help you to remain focused on the work that matters most.

Founded on the Catholic Marist values of humility, simplicity and modesty, we are guided by the example of St Marcellin Champagnat, our founder, and aim to produce resilient young people who are eager to make a difference in the world.

Marist Brothers Linmeyer places equal focus on a differentiated academic curriculum, a wide range of sporting and cultural activities while still competing at a very high level. We maintain an important focus on community engagement through our dedicated outreach programme.

Our committed teachers are subject specialists who are able to adjust to the ever-changing demands placed on education, without compromising standards and values. Our excellent IEB matric results and exceptional tertiary success are testimony to this.

We aspire to grow leaders and thinkers who will leave our school gates, inspired and motivated, ready to reach their full potential and to achieve dreams and aspirations.
