This article explores what prompted Swiss clerics to establish schools within their mission fields in South Africa. Missionaries regarded education as the main catalyst for social transformation and were aware that social change would occur only if the Missions co-operated. Interdenominationalism was therefore embraced by the Swiss Mission in the former Transvaal Province.
