I attempted to teach Nehema how to ride his bicycle, I got frustrated and gave up. After one hour at mountain biking, he learnt how to ride his own bicycle! This is impressive! St Martin’s is not a cheap school, but what the kids get out of the school is priceless. Thanks for raising Nehema so well!

We are so thankful to the staff and Mrs Venter for going the extra mile to assist us technically and ensuring that our children can join their classmates virtually and start learning. "Where every child is known" - we have seen this value in action at St Martin's Prep and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all.

One of the best compliments a teacher can get is when a student goes home and says ‘Mom I had a great day at school’ Both Membilli and Cielo do this every day. THANKS.
