    happyfaces4Maritzburg Preparatory School has been operating in the southern suburbs of PMB for more than 20 years. It boasts some of the finest teachers in the city and has produced outstanding pupils, including many head prefects in numerous of our city’s prestigious high schools. The school board has made the decision to start a new school at Worlds View. The five-acre facility is owned by OneLife/NCF Church, which has the desire to promote top-quality schooling. Historically, church-school partnerships have been the way that many of the private schools in our region have been founded. The current zoning of the property allows for the preschool phase.
