Our vision, created by our founders, guides us in all that we do:

“We dedicate ourselves to the honour and glory of God and the vision of the Holy Rosary Sisters which urges us to value the uniqueness and potential of each individual and to strive for excellence in education within the context of a changing South African and global society.”

We nurture God-given talents and potential in an environment of educational excellence. However, our girls’ education expands beyond the classroom – through sport, culture, spirituality and service – where they are given the opportunities to develop further skills, and the guidance and tools to lead happy, balanced and successful lives.

Holy Rosary School


Our school has deep roots

Holy Rosary School was opened in 1940 by the Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary.The school stays true to the values of the founding Sisters:

-Empowering women

-Service to Community

These courageous women, gave up their lives in Ireland to come to South Africa for a greater purpose. They came to South Africa to help others. They loved people beyond themselves. They worked in the fields and built the school. They achieved a massive lasting legacy - a school that nurtures the girls of today into the women of tomorrow.
