A word from our Principal
Welcome back to a year filled with new opportunities!
I am pleased to announce that our theme for 2022 is @TeamworkMakesTheDreamWorkPAHS.
Together with my staff and the SGB, our school is both strong and committed to ensuring that our learners’ well-being remains a priority. To achieve this our focus during the forthcoming academic year will be on Communication, Care, Culture and Community.
We also encourage parents to consider adopting this theme at home and to also become more involved at school, especially on the sports front.
Let us support our children as a TEAM: “Together Everyone Achieves More” !
Ages 3 months - Grade 12. Eastern Cape, South Africa. We're a family centered school and this ethos allows for the investment of personal attention in its valued pupils to further their growth and provide an all-round education of an excellent standard.
Ages 3 months - Grade R
Play is a child’s way of learning and is essential for growth and development. We offer a stimulating environment that unlocks the imagination.
Children learn the “fun”-damentals of reading, writing and numeracy as well as key life skills and developing their thinking skills.
Grade 4 - Grade 7
These are key developmental years in any child’s life and every effort is made to make school as interesting and as enriching as possible.
Grade 8 - Grade 12
Students grow physically while establishing a sense of individuality, self-worth and purpose. We guide and grow our future leaders.
