“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Deeply rooted in Girls High’s history, is a culture of caring and sense of social responsibility, including:

  • Interact
  • Blood donation
  • Recycling
  • First Aid
  • Mandela Week

As a gesture of goodwill and appreciation, the girls of Girls High knitted and sent socks and gloves to the South African soldiers conscripted to fight in the Second World War. After the war knitting became a Girls High tradition. Each girl is required to knit strips every year, which are sewn together to create blankets that are then given to different charity organisations.

Small change is also collected every Friday morning. At the end of the year, organisations that are in need are identified and the items bought with the money collected are handed over to them at our annual Children’s Day celebration.

The end of a Girls High girl’s journey is marked by a final act of service when she donates her school shoes on the day of her last Matric exam.
