The Marist Association Durban is over 80 years old and facilitates all the Alumni that have passed through the doors of St Henry’s Marist College.
The Association was established as a Non Profit Company and Public Benefit Organisation and strives to change the lives of the boys and girls who walk the school corridors and ensure the sustainability of St Henry’s Marist College legacy. It aims to support, through funds raised and donations received identified development areas of the school. These include the bursary programme, as well as various development programs guided by the words of St Marcellin Champagnat (founder of the Marist Brothers teaching order).
The Association-sourced funding supports a bursary throughout the school at any given time. The Marist Association is involved in the full interview processes and decision-making around the awarding of the bursaries. The interview panel consists of Marist Alumni that have a passion and heart for Marist and most specifically, St Henry’s Marist College.
The Marist Association engages and partners with St Henry’s parents, staff, old boys and girls, individual private donors, businesses and corporate companies, and local and international foundations and Trusts to benefit current and future Marists.
The Association works closely with St Henry’s boys and girls, including the bursary recipients, to encourage the awareness, growth and development of the next generation of young Marists.
