Help Us Thrive

At Umhlali Preparatory School, we strive to provide our pupils with the best possible education in an environment where they can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We are committed to equipping them with the skills, knowledge, and character traits needed to succeed in an ever-evolving world.


Our Fundraising Committee is a parent-led initiative. Throughout the year a host of events are organised with all funds raised donated to the school’s Totis Viribus Trust. The Fundraising Committee is comprised of parents from all grades, with a new Committee created at the beginning of each year.

The School Governing Body utilizes funds generated by fundraising for various projects and initiatives aimed at enhancing the educational offering of the school.

To continue offering exceptional educational experiences, maintaining our facilities, and implementing innovative programs, we rely on the support and contributions of our dedicated community of parents, alumni and local businesses.
