Phoenix is situated northwest of central Durban, KZN. It was established as a township in 1976. It is associated with the Phoenix Settlement built by Mahatma Gandhi.

Residential areas surrounding Phoenix are Verulam, Kwa-Mashu, Tongaat and Inanda.

High unemployment has over the years resulted in many households living below the breadline. This impacted directly on the education of the children of this township.

General Council: August 2013 - August 2015
