Hermannsburg School


Clubs and Societies At Hermannsburg

Enviro Club


The Enviro-Nature Club members go on regular field trips, and the senior members participate most successfully in the annual inter-school Enviroquiz competition. Each year, several weekend field trips are planned. We also have a large focus on maintaining our eco-school status and taking part in recycling and other conservation initiatives. A Junior Ranger programme is offered on two levels for our Grade 3 – 7s and our Grade 8 – 12s, which allows the completion of a 5-phase training course, and can earn external certification and recognition with the SANPARKS Honorary Rangers.



Children-Helping-Children is our Primary School outreach programme. We support the children from the Umvoti AIDS Centre or other in-need establishments in and around Greytown.

Our scholars support by giving them gifts four times a year.

Pottery Club


The Pottery Club meets weekly during the school term and all scholars, from Pre-school through to High School, are welcome. The many pieces, ranging from basic nameplates to complex crockery and ornamental designs, are glazed and fired on the premises in Hermannsburg’s own kilns.

Christian Youth Group


Since Hermannsburg started as a mission station in 1854, there has been a strong, well-supported commitment to keep our youth involved in the faith. Daily devotions and regular services in the school chapel are integral to life at Hermannsburg, and the Youth Group meets weekly.

Theatrical Performances


The school attends theatrical performances as often as possible. Whenever appropriate, shows are offered to the school. The school encourages the performing arts by incorporating drama in cross-curricular activities, and by offering opportunities for the scholars to participate in public performances of musical and theatrical natures. Every year, either the Primary School or the High School puts on a performance. In 2021, it is the Primary School, and in 2022, it will be the High School’s turn.

Art Club


The Art Club is a space in which scholars can choose what they want to paint, bead, paper mache, sculpt, stencil or draw outside with oil or soft pastel. It’s time out in a busy world in which each scholar can be involved in the process of making and being creative, simply for the purpose of personal contentment and having FUN. It is not lesson driven, but it follows the scholar’s interest. Being creative is healthy for each one of us and a very important aspect of living well that needs to be stimulated.

Canoeing & Fishing

For those enthusiasts interested in watersports, we have a lovely dam, suitable for bass fishing, and scholars can bring fishing rods, and make arrangements for activities on the dam with their boarding parents or the sport staff.

Ballet & Modern Dance


Ballet and/or modern dancing lessons take place weekly and are taught by an external dancing instructor who travels to our school for your convenience. Please note that the cost of dancing lessons is not included in the school fees.
