Mandini Academy

Faster, Stronger, Smarter


Early History of Mandini Primary School.

The Mandini Government School" was started in January 1954 by Mrs Frikkie Snyman at 12 Richards Circle. Trevor Wiggill was registered as no. 1 on the school register. Mrs Snyman was the only teacher for 18 children ranging in ages from 2 to 12 years. As the number increased, Mr Moggee was appointed as headmaster with two assistant teachers and the school moved to the newly built Mandini Club, where seven foot partitions divided the hall into four classrooms.

Taken from the book "Mandini" published by the Women's Institute of Mandini.
