Dalpark Private School was founded in 1988 by Mrs D. Broderick as Magic Moments  Nursery School.  It was registered under the banner of Dalpark Independent Education Centre and a few years later the Department of Education saw the need for a primary school in the area and approached Mrs B.  This was when Dalpark Private School opened its doors to its first primary school learners.  The school then grew year on year by adding a grade until we reached our first Grade 7 class in the early 2000’s.  Thereafter a second grade one class was added and again the growth continued each year until we reached the stage where we had two classes of each grade up to Grade 7.  

After a few years of only going up to Grade 7, plans to expand to a high school were put in place. This was partly due to Mrs Broderick’s vision and also due to requests from parents.  Eventually, in 2018, we had our first group of Grade 8 learners.  These learners are now in Grade 10 at the school and should be our first Grade 12 learners to matriculate from the school in 2023.
