About our school


Domino Servite School is committed to creating a happy, Christian-based environment wherein all learners are encouraged to demonstrate respect and responsible citizenship, academic excellence and Bible-based moral values.


The Domino Servite School community endeavours to provide an educational program that prepares all learners to develop their talents, confidence and self-respect. We strive to achieve high academic standards that will equip our learners to fulfil a useful role in society with excellence and integrity.

Our Heritage

Domino Servite School was founded in 1986 to serve the needs of the children associated with KwaSizabantu Mission in KwaZulu-Natal, on which it is situated. It is a co-educational academic Christian school that caters for pre-primary, primary and high school learners as well as day scholars and boarders.

From its inception Domino Servite has progressed unerringly in its commitment to academic excellence and upholding Bible-based moral values. Its principals, staff and learners have molded and will continue to mold the spirit of the school.

The four values: respect, responsible citizenship, academic excellence and Bible-Based moral values as reflected in the Mission Statement are promoted and ascribed to.

The active involvement of parents and KwaSizabantu Mission staff, has enriched the lives of present learners in the form of spiritual training and support, facilities and the school buildings in which they work and play.

The school badge is a pictorial summary of the pillars of Domino Servite. The Cedar tree represents the school’s close association with KwaSizabantu Mission. The Bible and the sword, the Word of God and the flame symbolises the fire of revival.
