St Boniface High School has more than 900 learners. We appreciate the fact that you are considering sending your child to the Christian Brothers, St Boniface High School. The Christian Brothers have been educating the youth of Galeshewe since 1951 and we have the experience of teaching worldwide since 1802. In 1802 Christian Brothers’ education began when Br Edmund Rice opened his first school for the very poor Street Children in a stable in the city of Waterford, Ireland. Pope John Paul II beatified him in the Roman Catholic Church in 1996. That means that we can pray to him and ask him to intercede for us with Jesus. Today the Christian Brothers have more than 400 schools in over 30 countries in the world – 12 of them in Africa. We cater especially for Catholic learners, and we encourage as many Catholic boys and girls to enroll, but we give the same attention to learners of all c denominations.
Admissions for 2009 school year are open to young men and women entering Grades 7 –11. We would feel it a great privilege to be able to educate your child.
Academically and spiritually and to be able to give him leadership that will gift him throughout his life. St Boniface High School has the reputation of giving a thorough grounding in academics, discipline and religion and ,throughout the years, has obtained some of the finest results in South Africa.
