The Lansdowne Community is situated on Imam Haron Road, along the M5. Here the Salesians established an agricultural school in 1923. The farm was eventually closed in the late 1940’s and moved up to Daleside (Walkerville)  in Gauteng. The school – Savio College – continued until 1976. Since then part of the former school property has been used for a variety of youth activities and at the moment it is used by the Santos Soccer Club.

 

The parish of Our LaCommunities lansdownedy Help of Christians was established in 1932 and the present church was built in 1960. The parishes of Hanover Park (1972) and Westridge (1977) are also staffed by members of the Lansdowne community.

 

The Life Choices Project, a behaviour change and HIV/AIDS education and awareness programme has been run from here since 2004.
