Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg

Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg

Our heritage dates back to the 1840s, when a Christian revival movement in Lower Saxony, Germany resulted in great interest in mission work. Pastor Louis Harms trained suitable young men as missionaries, sending them out with craftsmen to establish mission stations in Africa.

Over the next 100 years, about 240 missionaries made the journey into Africa, and all of them would come to Hermannsburg first. Here they would learn isiZulu, before travelling through Zululand, Natal and Transvaal to start mission stations. The German families in these areas are descendants of those settlers.

The Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg was founded in 1856 by the first group of these missionaries, becoming the very first boarding school in Natal.
