About Us

Our History

LENASIA MUSLIM SCHOOL celebrates its 32nd anniversary this year. in 1987, a very wise man, Moulana Yahyah Bham together with a few prominent members in society came up with this brain child, a teaching and learning institute which would provide an Islamically sound environment, producing well balanced and integrated students who would be professionals in a diverse and multicultural society. It is with this idea of a strong Islamic ethos that LMS was established in 1988, offering a dual integrated Islamic and secular curriculum. It started with a roll of 189 learners and a staff compliment of 8 educators, offering grade 1 to 6. The school roll rapidly increased and the school relocated to a property in Lenasia, off the K43 donated by the Ismail family.

The vision and mission statement, coined 33 years ago, has stood the test of time. It is the credo by which the school operates and will hold credibility for many generations to come. 

The underlying principles on which the school operates are closely aligned to and uphold the South African Constitutional values. Our learners, from all different walks of life, are treated equally, have equal access to all resources and are given the freedom to choose their subjects in line with the practice of democracy. We do not tolerate racial discrimination and we embrace diversity, valueing the input of all stakeholders. Our daily Akhlaaq programme reinforces human dignity, social justice, respect, equality and democracy. We operate ethically, with integrity and mutual respect for all of humanity.


Our shared goal is to develop learners spiritually, intellectually, physically and emotionally in a safe and stimulating environment. In doing so, we hope to produce learners who would be able to play a meaningful role in the South African society and the world at large.


What makes LMS stand out head and shoulders above the rest is the fact that our vision and mission statement are not simply plaques on our walls. We translate each and every statement into measurable outcomes and actions.
