Our school enrolled its first pupils in 1912, when the Umbilo area was still on the outskirts of Durban and where monkeys and other animals were the most common inhabitants. Stella Park Junior Primary amalgamated with our school in 1986 and therefore the school could offer education in both Primary phases. Over the years Durban Primary has continued to serve the Umbilo and Berea. Many of Durban’s leading citizens, from all walks of life, have received their educational foundation at Durban Primary.
