Background Information

   1.       Michaelhouse Information

   Michaelhouse, the Anglican Diocesan College of Natal, was founded in 1896 and is a South
   African boarding school for senior boys, with an international reputation. Situated on a secure
   estate in the beautiful Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, the school has a fully residential staff which
   facilitates a high level of pastoral care and interaction with the pupils. The distinctive architecture
   of inter-linked quadrangles inspires a sense of belonging amongst the 550 boys.

   To live our lives according to the Christian values of integrity, humility, compassion and courage
   in service to our community and country.

   To provide a dynamic and progressive education for boys that respects individual needs and
   embraces diversity and change in pursuit of academic, sporting and cultural excellence, while
   providing social and leadership skills and nurturing spiritual growth.

   “Our aim is to make, not accountants, not clerks, not clergymen, but men; men of understanding,
   thought and culture.”
                            Founder James Cameron Todd, Speech Day 1897
