With Krugersdorp High School boasting 17 hectares of pristine property, there is little wonder that the school has a wide variety of sporting opportunities for the learners to choose from. The aim of the school is to encourage learners to participate and further develop their skills in a sporting code. The school is of the firm belief that learning does not only take place in the classroom but also when a learner participates in extra-curricular activities. This is where they develop life skills.
An individual is encouraged to participate in a summer and winter sport. With this in mind, many of the sporting codes run throughout the year. The senior teams are encouraged to go for additional sports conditioning in the gym under the supervision of the school’s sports conditioner, Mr Botha. Programmes are setup for each team to ensure safe physical development for all the teams.
Krugersdorp as a Focus School for Sport
Krugersdorp High School is a focus school with Cricket South Africa and the Gauteng Cricket Board, with the aim of developing cricket on the West Rand. This programme is currently being run by Mr Andre Botha, Irish International and Boland Cricket player. Over and above this, the school was identified by the Department of Sports and Recreation as a focus school for further development of rugby, hockey, netball and cricket.
Krugersdorp High School was the first school on the West Rand to lay an Astro Hockey Turf (known as the Henry Harman Astro). As a result of the insightful development of the facilities at the school, the learners have achieved phenomenally on the sportsfield with both boys’ and girls’ being ranked in the Top 30 in the country. The Krugersdorp High School netball girls’ have a busy netball calendar and the results speak for themselves, with our U/17 and U/14 girls’ being ranked in the Top 20 sides in Gauteng. Over and above these accolades, Krugersdorp High School has continuously had provincial and/or national representation in boys and girls hockey, boys’ and girls’ rugby, netball, volleyball, equestrian, boys and girls’ cricket, boys’ and girls’ soccer, squash, tennis and golf.
