Welcome to Our New 2020 Parents
Welcoming our New Parents for 2020 & Engaging with our unique Pastoral House Programme
Our parent community is one of the most important of our stakeholder groups at College; their support is greatly valued and appreciated, as are opportunities to engage and interact with them.
One such event is our annual New Parents Evening held recently in the Ron Jury High Performance Centre where more than 300 parents met with their sons’ housemasters and mentor teachers. The Pastoral Care House programme at College is a unique one which provides mentorship, support and guidance to each boy throughout his time at Maritzburg College.
Within our 10 school Houses, experienced staff, consisting of a Housemaster, Assistant Housemaster and Mentors, as well as House Captains and House Leaders, all compliment and contribute to the school’s Pastoral Care Programme. A House is a pupil’s home base for his entire time at Maritzburg College, where he can benefit from the support provided by House Mentors, the peer mentorship offered through the Big Brother system and the camaraderie that exists within each House. Beyond this, the House system brings with it healthy competition in academic, sporting and cultural spheres throughout the year.
Our new parents were afforded the opportunity to meet their sons’ House staff well as engage with fellow parents.
Parents were encouraged to #KeepinTouch with College through the various communication platforms as well as join our Maritzburg College Parents Club which aims to create opportunities for parents to interact and engage with each other.
