through our proud Paarl GHS Association

This association acts as an umbrella for two categories of members. These two categories are Old Girls and Pro Girls (Pro Girls’ Higher)

...as an old girl

“Weg van die Paarl as jare verby is, met vreug sal ons steeds daardie dae herdenk.”

We encourage roles of support, sisterhood and mentorship that continue even after our matriculants leave our beautiful school.

We use Alumnet where the happenings of our Old Girl’s / Alumni are communicated to members.

However, it is so easy to lose contact with our Old Girls as they enter the world, create careers and get married. The latter, especially when maiden surnames change, makes it very difficult to find our Old Girls. We encourage you to register on the Alumnet platform as an Old Girl. This will provide you with the opportunity to stay in contact with the school, your former classmates, as well as receive up to date information. 

Please consider your continued support to Girls’ High scholars and the school. This can be financial towards a specific project (of which we would love to share details with you), mentoring, job shadowing opportunities or sharing your expertise and career advice with our scholars.  We invite you to visit our website and Paarl Girls’ High / Hoër Meisieskool Paarl social media platforms on a regular basis to share your views, provide input such as photographs, news and stories and to participate in our activities.

...as a PRO girl

A Pro Girls member can be a parent, supporter, male or female.  The Pro Girls category will be managed by the executive committee of the GHS Association.  We encourage you to register on the Alumnet platform as a Pro Girl.  This will provide you with the opportunity to get in contact with other parents and supporters.

PAARL GHS Association vision & mission

  • The words AMPLIORA ET ALTIORA, meaning ‘Larger and Higher’,  highlight the reason why we are inspired to emulate the lifestyle of the Nautilus. We strive to turn away from things that are small, mean, foolish and unworthy and to follow what is true, pure, honest and just. 
  • Om die waardes en tradisies van HMS Paarl te help bevorder en bewaar.  
  • Om ‘n platform te skep waar Old Girls met mekaar in kontak kan bly en mekaar in die lewe na skool kan bystaan.
  • Om ‘n platform te skep waar Old Girls en ondersteuners hande kan vat om ons gemeenskaplike visie te verwesenlik: om HMS Paarl tot so ‘n mate by te staan sodat elke huidige leerder in ‘n gelukkige en uitdagende leefruimte met trots haar eie volle potensiaal kan bereik.
