Grade 7

In the Information to New Parents booklet, the headmaster states that, ‘Durban Prep is a Life Experience. There is always a buzz – things happening because the school has so much to offer.’ We are a busy school and Grade 7 is the year where our school motto comes to the fore, ‘From small beginnings, better fortune follows.’ The Grade 7 year is your son’s pinnacle of primary school. He must make the most of it.

In Grade 7 we aim to:

  • Develop a positive self-image amongst the boys. It is very important for each boy to be informed and to be proud of himself and his school.
  • Develop the leadership potential in each pupil. We develop role models for the rest of the school to follow through our Prep Pal leadership programme, House, Sport, Cultural and School captaincy and our leadership programme.
  • Create a network of friends and bonds.

This is achieved through the Prep Pal programme; grade and class activities; grade excursions and through our ‘Blokes’ days.
In short we aim to make each boy’s Grade 7 year his most memorable and enjoyable year at school.
