Positioning RGHS for the future
Integrated Campus Development Plan:
Rustenburg High School for Girls School Governing Body, together with independent contractors have been guiding an Integrated Campus Development Plan (ICDP) to extend and upgrade our campus over several planned phases.
Phase 1 of the project has been supported by the Western Cape Education Department who have committed R3 million to the project. We are pleased to announce the approval of a substantial bank loan to cover the remainder of the cost. RGHS parents have committed to a minimum of R1,6 million per year to service the loan.
Eighty years ago, Rustenburg girls enjoyed a world class facility. Today, significant improvements are needed if we are to provide facilities that will meet the the needs of a leading high school of excellence in the 21st century.
Whilst Rustenburg is blessed with beautiful architecture in one of the most beautiful settings in South Africa, the 80 year old campus no longer meets the needs of a 21st Century school. For the past few years, the School Governing Body has spent approximately R2 million each year maintaining and improving the existing facilities. With plans to increase the enrolment at the school by 150 in the next 5 years (one extra class per year) and a desire to achieve even better results than we are at present, we need to invest in new facilities.
Rustenburg is in the process of extending and upgrading its campus in order to better cater to the needs of 21st century education, and continue and grow its legacy of developing young women to be leaders in the world. These improvements include:

There will be ongoing efforts to find sponsors to help us cover the costs, as well as other fundraising events. Rustenburg has long desired to increase the involvement of past pupils in the day-to-day life of the school, and this development plan gives us the opportunity to do so. Working with the Rustenburg Old Girls Union, we hope that the hub created in the new Leadership Centre will foster an ongoing sense of community among past and present pupils of the school by improving our communications and drawing in those that wish to get involved.
