Mr Lester Lalla

Welcome to St John’s Preparatory School - a vibrant and happy learning community where we remain committed to the ambition of those who came before us, that St John’s be a place where boys are rightly trained in body, mind and character.

Rooted firmly in the Anglican tradition, we offer our boys a holistic education characterised by a rigorous academic curriculum that enables them to engage the world in a meaningful way; and a dynamic, well-structured co-curricular programme with an emphasis on participation and personal excellence.

Through teaching and learning that is rich in knowledge, skills and experience, we endeavour to develop young men of character and empathy who are curious and socially responsive.

Our talented and dedicated staff draw on global best practices in order to deliver an educational experience that is relevant, contextual and informed.

We are extremely proud of our long-awaited and newly opened Preparatory building, which looks to the future with an emphasis on function, comfort and durability while honouring the past with harmonious integration with the old Prep buildings.

I invite you to visit our world-class Christian, African campus and share in the awe and wonder of learning.

Mr Lester Lalla

Preparatory Headmaster

Africa Day

Today we celebrate Africa Day. Africa Day was first celebrated on 25 May 1963 when the leaders of 32 African nations gathered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to form the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). On 25 May 2001, after 38 years, the OAU was replaced by the African Union, which celebrates its 19th anniversary this year.
