School is, first and foremost, a place where children come to learn, and the pursuit of academic excellence remains one of our strategic goals. However, the life lessons that are learnt at school are often learnt outside the classroom. At Pinelands High, we offer our pupils many opportunities to become involved in sport, music, drama and a variety of other cultural activities. We believe in educating the whole child, and give all the children in our care the opportunity to find their own niche and excel in their own particular way. The young men and women who leave Pinelands High are confident, energetic and passionate individuals, ready to take their place in contemporary South African society.
