Early History

On 12th January 1990 a group of people met together in Marondera to discuss the possibility of starting a Christian primary school.  A public meeting held a month later was attended by 50 people, all showing great interest in such a school being established.

Rev George Martin volunteered to cope with all the bureaucracy that establishing a school entails. At the end of 1990, he left his teaching job at Peterhouse School and was appointed the first headmaster of the new school to be known as Lendy Park.

As yet there was no land and no buildings, but parents were very keen that children be enrolled and that lessons should start. So a Grade 1 class with 20 children was opened in 1991, the venue being the Dutch Reformed Church hall along First Street in Marondera.  The first teacher was Mrs. Gill Martin. 

Through the generosity of many members of the Marondera community, the land was bought in a beautiful msasa woodland area, a couple of km south of Marondera and building began.  In July, 1992, Grades 1 and 2 were able to move into large airy classrooms at the site.

Building continued and each year a new grade was added until in 1997 Lendy Park had a class from Grade 1 to 7. A house had been rented in town and early boarders were accommodated there.
