Welcome to St David's Marist Inanda
St David’s Marist Inanda is many things.
We are a Catholic boys' school located in Johannesburg, one where every member of our school family upholds the Christian teachings of the Gospel.
We are a Marist school, founded on the Catholic Marist values of humility, simplicity and modesty. We are guided by the example of St Marcellin Champagnat, who founded the Marist Brothers with the aim of educating young people, in particular those from impoverished backgrounds.
Ash Wednesday is the Church's Day of Atonement. The very name of the day comes from the ancient practice of mourning or doing penance wearing "sackcloth and ashes" to express penitence, not only by Christians but by pagans as well. The Old Testament shows us the pagan people of Nineveh, the pagan King Ben Haddad of Syria, and the Jewish Queen Esther, who fasted, wearing sackcloth and ashes. In the early Church, Christians who had committed serious sins did public penance wearing sackcloth and ashes. The Church instructs us to observe Ash Wednesday and Good Friday as complete fasting and abstinence days. Fasting is prescribed to reinforce our penitential prayer during the Lenten season.Read more

The commencement of a school year is filled with anticipation, promising fresh and untapped possibilities. For our boys, it's a chance to learn, grow, and explore new horizons. Change is an inevitable part of life, and within the school environment, it manifests through new teachers, classmates, and experiences.Read more
