Established in 1952, Pinelands High School is a public high school situated in the suburb of Pinelands. We offer an extensive academic and extra-mural programme and have a rich history of success in many spheres of endeavour.
Our educational offering includes a wide subject choice in the formal curriculum, as well as sport, music, drama and other extra-mural and extra-curricular activities. This means that there is a place for every student in our school to make a contribution, to excel and to shine. It also makes high school a busy and fun place to be!
Our catchwords Excellence, Leadership and Innovation are at the centre of all that we do, and ensure that we remain a school with an aspirational ethos which prepares young people for successful and fulfilled adult lives.
Our diversity extends beyond race and ethnicity to embrace culture, religion, socioeconomic background, gender, and the physical and spheres. Our new school motto, Diversity, Eenheid (Unity), Ukukhula (Growth) captures the spirit of our school.
We believe in the importance of a disciplined, well-managed and administratively efficient environment, as these elements then allow academic endeavour, creativity and thought to flourish
