Herschel offers a wonderful aftercare programme from 12:30 to 17:00 from Monday to Friday for girls from Pre-Nursery to Grade 2. After a fun and full programme in the morning, aftercare gives the girls a space where they can choose how to spend their time.

Whether it’s dressing up in the dolly corner, reading quietly in the reading corner, playing educational games or spending time with friends, the girls are encouraged to unleash their imagination.

In addition to our normal aftercare programme, we also have a jam-packed holiday programme in July and December. Our programme includes activities like baking, dress up, and fun activities related to an exciting theme.

School Song

We are assembled here in love,
We are united, we care for one another.
The greatest lesson of all is the one
That teaches us to live together, together.

Everyone’s a spark and in the night
Together we make a light, a fire burning bright
Ad Dei Gloriam; Inkosi mayibongwe:
To the glory of our God: this is what we believe.

In times of trouble we support
Our fellows; we are taught to be there for our friends.
And all around us, there will be
That special unity, that binds us all together.

If we come back after many years,
We will think fondly of the things that we remember,
And the friends that we made then,
These will be friends forever, forever.

By Thandi Siebert, Head Girl 1993
