Notices & Reminders

President Ramaphosa announced five days of national mourning to remember the victims of both COVID-19 and gender-based violence and femicide from 25 - 29 November. The President asked South Africans to wear black armbands or other signs of mourning to signify their respect of the dead during this time.
Rustenburg girls may choose to wear black armbands/wristbands or black facemasks during this time, and we will fly our flags at half mast.
