The Inanda Seminary is an independent, girls' secondary school situated in Inanda township near Durban, South Africa.
Since 1869 it has built a proud reputation for educating black South African women who have gone into the world exemplifying the school’s motto of
Shine Where You Are.
Tragically our chapel and chapel hall were gutted by a fire. No children or staff were injured. The fire, which broke out at 07:17 on 27 May 2021, was contained, only affecting the seminary’s chapel and chapel hall which are on the periphery of the school’s property. The bricks and structure of these buildings remain completely intact, but the wooden rafters, beams, roof and furniture were entirely destroyed.
