Welcome to Glenwood Christian School
Glenwood Christian School opened its doors for the first time in 1996 with 17 children and 4 staff. The idea of starting a school was birthed by members of the Queen Mary Ave., Church of Christ who were concerned with the moral decay, decline in academic standards and lack of godly discipline in regular schools.
Using the church facility, the school grew over the years thanks to a very dedicated group of educators and parents. Most of the early educators offered their services for free.
Clay Hart, an American missionary was the school’s first principal with his wife Cindy filling the roll of school secretary. Two years later Brian Lister was appointed principal when Clay Hart returned with his family to the USA. Brian and his wife Diane moved to Durban where he had been the minister of the Empangeni church of Christ. Apart from his role as principal, Brian also became the Queen Mary Ave, church of Christ, pulpit minister.
In 2013, Philip Theron was appointed principal with Brian moving to the position of Administrator. The school has grown steadily over the years and produced some remarkable graduates. At the start of 2015 it has a student body of 130 learners and 16 staff members. Regrettably the school is now at capacity as the facility doesn’t allow for any more learners.
The school’s vision is to Influence Culture for Jesus Christ. The school takes this mandate seriously. Quality education couched within the Christian ethic will always be first prize for Glenwood Christian School.
