Dear RGHS Families

The staff and I look forward to the return of our Grade 8 and 9 learners, starting with orientation for Grade 9 at 08:00 on Monday 3 August (Week 1 day 1) and Grade 8 on Tuesday 4 August 2020 (Week 1 day 2).  School ends at 14:30 on a Monday and 14:20 the rest of the week.  Although schools have subsequently been offered a delayed return, Rustenburg has chosen to continue with the dates originally gazetted by the National Education Department. 

Grade 8s will attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Week 1 and Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Week 2.

Grade 9s will attend school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Week 1 and Tuesdays and Thursdays in Week 2.

Learners need to arrive at school in time to be screened before the start of day at 08:00.  Screening takes place from 07:15.  No learner may enter the building before she has been screened and has her sticker as proof.

School will be closed from 10 to 14 August.  Although the 10th and 11th are official public/ school holidays, Rustenburg has allocated 12 to 14 August as a work-from-home week to enable girls to ensure that they are up to date when we resume studies on Monday 17 August.

Parents of Grade 8s and 9s: if you have not already done so, please complete the survey below with regard to your daughter’s return to school:

Notices & Reminders

Tuckshop Pre-orders

Payments that were made for Term 2 lunch shop orders will be refunded to your daughter’s school fees account.  If the school fees account is fully paid for 2020, you are welcome to email and request a refund to your bank account (please provide bank account details).  If you are paying school fees on debit order, the last debit order payment in 2020 will be adjusted accordingly.

Grade 11 ID Documents

According to the Department of Home Affairs only matric students may apply for ID cards. The Grade 11 pupils will therefore have to wait until Home Affairs states otherwise. 
REMINDER: The Bugs' Boutique will be open on Saturday 1 August from 10:00-12:00 for your convenience.


Calling on all Rustenburg learners and staff to get active and help Rustenburg score points and become the leading ACTIVE school in SA!

There are 8 challenges which include run/walk; cycling; swimming; chess; golf; dance; horse riding; gymnastics and even a fun Rubik's cube competition. The 1st Challenge is a run/walk effort which you may have done this week - sign up and log your walk/run/s from 13 - 19 July - thereafter they don't count. On Monday 20 July we will find out what the next challenge is and get the results from Week 1.
Open the PDF to SIGN UP and get involved.

Two of our Alumna, Jamie Fraser and Aleya Dugmore (E'19) have started an NGO, Uplift Through Thrift . They are appealing for donations of clothing and blankets that will go to families in need or will be sold in their second hand store. All of the proceeds from the store goes to providing relief to families negatively affected by Covid-19. Email them at and they will let you know when and where you can drop off the items.
