The International celebration of Mandela Day this Saturday (18 July – his birthday) is a reminder
that we can all make a difference in the world.
Mandela Day - Giving
Many people are asking about volunteering or donating goods: please do NOT drop by but instead e-mail us first.
At the moment we have enough volunteers. But, as churches are beginning to come back on stream, do contact organisations in your locality to see if you can help there. And remember that volunteers are needed all year round – not just on Mandela Day.
The volunteers we have are working with us, and a network of faith partners, to serve 500 hot lunches every day. The food is handed out in containers to make distribution as fast as possible and to minimise contact.
But we also do not want to add to the destruction of the planet. So we have made the commitment to use sugar-cane containers and spoons made from starch so they are biodegradable.
Of course, such eco-virtue comes at a substantial cost that we do not usually incur: R2.29 per person comes to R1,145 per day!
So if you want to make a gesture for Mandela Day – and also contribute to the environment – please consider a financial donation to us so we can continue to afford to use eco-friendly packaging.
Mandela Day - Learning
Our friends at Independent Media – publishers of the Mercury – are hosting a webinar this Saturday for Mandela Day.
It is looking at the impact of COVID especially on the poor. Raymond Perrier, our Director, is the lead speaker.
He will be giving a ‘virtual tour’ of the Denis Hurley Centre, talking about what we have been doing and what we continue to do now that lockdown has moved to Level 3.
You can tune into this at 1pm on Saturday 18 May via the POST Facebook page; please share this with your friends.
By the way, if you would like someone from the Denis Hurley Centre to make an on-line presentation for a group that you are involved in, then feel free to contact us.
Churches, coffee groups, book clubs and youth groups are still meeting even if on-line: so it is easy to invite us to be part of your group for a session, to share some of our experiences and also (if it is live) to answer questions.
(Note that the final few of the limited edition linocut prints of Paddy Kearney Way by estemeed Durban artist John Roome are still available, priced R2,500 of which 60% comes to the DHC. For more information email; to view the image see our Facebook page).
Mandela Day - Shopping
What better way to mark 102 years than with some retro shopping?
The Vintage Station is housed in an historical building at 170 Mahatma Gandhi Road on The Point and houses a selection of small vintage sellers.
Experience a range of vintage, retro and antique items; furniture, fashion, household decor.
There is free parking on the street or at nearby Ushaka. Open every Saturday and Sunday 9am to 2pm. (Also open by appointment during the week.) Payments by Zapper and card machine are possible.
For Mandela Day, we will have one of our famous Street Lit booksellers on site with a selection of South African books (as well as many other high quality books at low prices).
Our Street Lit booksellers continue to operate at weekends (and sometimes during the week) at the Berea Centre, Pick’n’Pay Hyper-by-the-Sea, Westville Mall, KZNSA Gallery and on the streets of the CBD.
Why not invite us to send a bookseller to your place of work?: they will arrive suitably masked and sanitised and you and your colleagues can buy books at great prices and know you are providing constructive help to a homeless entrepreneur.

Thanks Eben Mbhele (Headboy of 1997 Matric Class) for showing your care to the College!

Giving is not just about making a donation, it's about making a difference” - Kathy Calvin.
With our Grade R to 12’s back on campus, It is lovely to hear the sound of our children laughing, chatting and making the best of this “new norm”! Social distancing, wearing masks, sanitizing regularly and wearing casual clothing is the order of the day. Until we can get back to wearing our special Marist “Blue and Gold”, every day is now a “civvies day.”
Whilst we have almost 60% of our pupils back on campus, we miss the remainder of our pupils who have remained at home opting for online learning. This new ‘blended learning’ model is an unbudgeted expense that our College has had to adapt to, to ensure that all our pupils have access to the quality education for which St Henry’s Marist College is known.
This transition to provide equal access to online and in-classroom lessons known as “blended learning” and expenses related to COVID-19 protocols has reiterated the need for the St Henry’s Marist Trust in collaboration with the Marist Alumni Association to come together to support the College by raising funds through the St Henry’s Marist College COVID-19 Relief Fund - “MARIST NEEDS YOU!’ Campaign.
The College’s traditional annual fundraising events which our Marist Family generously support or attend have been put on hold due to the pandemic. Therefore, we would like to call on you, our Marist Family, to support our “MARIST NEEDS YOU” campaign.
A sincere Marist “Thank you” to those who have already supported our campaign.
Our campaign will run until the end of September, so there is still time, should you wish to support the school you 💙.
Please see our “MARIST GIVING” channels below.
Together, we can make a difference!
See video clip of Eben Mbhele (Head Boy of 1997) ; we thank him for his support of our ‘MARIST NEEDS YOU!’ campaign.
Stay safe, happy and blessed! 🤗 😷
