On this will the spirit survive,
that we are building each
day of our lives.

Striving to retain visions,
searching for elusive goals.

Never losing hope for progress,
ever seeking strength of soul.


Years spent here are so few,
to fulfill what we'd hoped to do.

Friends remain as a sign,
that we are linked to St.Mark's through time.

Charity Club.

This is a school club that works with identifying and helping the needy children, not only in the school but around the country as well. Before outreach to other children in the country, the club will help first the needy children in the school; it is our motto that “Charity begins at home”.
The charity committee that runs the club in the school:
1)Ms T. Mkhonta - the deputy head, we work with her at the office.
2)Mrs. P. C. Ntjalintjali-the chairperson of the club.
3)Mrs. Z. Makhanya- the treasurer.
4)Ms P. Zwane- the organizer of donations and other things.
5)Ms N. W. Msibi - the club’s secretary.

The charity club collects everything, from none perishable goods (food and clothing) to money.  We edge everyone who is willing to give a helping hand to needy children, to come and donate at St Mark’s Primary, and then we will help our children and then reach out to children around the country.

Donations are done on monthly bases in groups of Grades e.g. 1-7

Thanks to the parents who have donated to our club, we as St. Mark's primary school appreciate that so much. We hope that it goes on and on generation after generation. St. Mark's primary school is is where it is today because of the people who have given their time, advice, money and much more for the well fare of the school.
