Tragically our chapel and chapel hall were gutted by a fire. No children or staff were injured. The fire, which broke out at 07:17 on 27 May 2021, was contained, only affecting the seminary’s chapel and chapel hall which are on the periphery of the school’s property. The bricks and structure of these buildings remain completely intact, but the wooden rafters, beams, roof and furniture were entirely destroyed.
The final term of the year is always busy, with the main event being the annual At Home celebration. Thereafter, it is time to start letting go of the matrics as they start writing their last ever school exams. But there's always time to fit in a few other events and celebrations before the year draws to a close.
Term 3 has been packed with many challenging and exciting events. Our students have celebrated, developed and excelled in many areas. Our staff have worked hard to keep making Inanda the special place it is. Many visitors have come and experienced our campus and the exceptional people who live and work here. And we have a new principal.
Term 2 is always a busy term at Inanda. In the first half of the term, the houses battle it out for the ultimate Inter-house title in various events, and then there are the exams at the end of the term. Some highlights are as follows...
The key event in Term 1 was undoubtedly the 150th Birthday. However, there were many other exciting events which took place. The year started off with the annual Summit for the staff. Notably, there were also the Matric Dance and the Swimming Gala.
A beautiful coffee table book, Shine: Inanda Seminary Celebrating 150 Years, has been produced to for the 150th birthday of the school. Featuring anecdotes and images from the school's past, particularly the last 50 years, the book is a wonderful tribute to Inanda Seminary, the place, the people and what it has stood for over the past 150 years.
