As an Old Girl

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)

"Away from Paarl when years have passed, with joy we will still commemorate those days."

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 Girls/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, and to receive up to date information.

Please consider your continued support to Girls High scholars and the school. This could be financially towards a specific project (of which we would love to share details with you), through mentoring/job shadowing opportunities, or by 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 touch with other parents and supporters.

Please consider your continued support to Girls' High scholars and the school. This could be financially towards a specific project (of which we would love to share details with you), through mentoring/job shadowing opportunities, or by sharing your expertise and career advice with our scholars.

Vision and 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.
  • To help promote and preserve the values ​​and traditions of HMS Paarl.
  • To create a platform where Old Girls can stay in touch with each other and assist each other in life after school.
  • To create a platform where Old Girls and supporters can join hands to realize our common vision: to assist HMS Paarl to such an extent that every current learner can proudly reach their own full potential in a happy and challenging living space reach.
