The school endorses the idea of a well-rounded and balanced education, with the intention of sending into the world compassionate, understanding and resourceful South African citizens who display a solid work ethic and can contribute positively towards a community. Much of this is achieved through strong extra-mural involvement. Learners acquire important life skills through their participation and commitment: good sportsmanship, camaraderie, leadership, the ability to respond to criticism, friendship, co-operation and a wholesome, healthy outlook.
Rustenburg attends a number of sporting festivals annually. Our first water polo team attends the St Peter’s College tournament in Johannesburg. We also attend the National Girls’ Schools’ Festival, which is hosted by different schools. We are represented at this tournament by our netball, hockey and touch rugby teams.
We are a member of the Peninsula Girls’ Schools’ Games Union (PGSGU). Most of our codes are governed by this body, with each sport culminating in an age-group tournament at the end of the season.
We have students who have represented South Africa at karate, rhythmic gymnastics and swimming. We also boast a large number of girls who have represented their province in a wide variety of sports.
