Rhenish Girls’ High School

Situated in the beautiful Stellenbosch Valley, Rhenish Girls’ High School has exceptionally beautiful grounds and the school strives to upgrade and maintain the facilities so that their girls have access to facilities that will enhance the quality of their all round education.

The School recognises the value held in its facilities and spaces – both to members of the School community but also to outside persons and organisations. The Schools space resources need to be carefully managed and fairly and consistently allocated to ensure that they are effectively utilised.
