Marist Brothers Linmeyer opened in 1966 with Brother Christopher as Principal. It was intended as a Primary School to replace the Koch Street School which was closing down, and most of the 258 boys transferred from Koch Street. In 1981 the first girls were admitted to Marist Brothers Linmeyer along with three staff members, namely Mrs Venter, Mrs Casasola and Mrs Karvelas. Permanent reminders of the pioneer Marist School at Koch Street were brought across to Marist Brothers Linmeyer. These included the original foundation stone as well as the original altar and the alter stone from the Koch Street chapel.
In 2016 Marist Brothers Linmeyer celebrated its Golden Jubilee of 50 years of academic excellence in Linmeyer. Offering an inclusive academic, cultural and co-curricular programme across the Pre-School, Primary and High Schools, our 1220 students are each encouraged to achieve their personal best.
