Jeppe High School for Girls

Sport

Sport provides an outlet for the talented and often provides experiences that mould the lives of learners for the future. It is an extremely important part of the culture of Jeppe Girls.

Jeppe Girls offers a full range of summer and winter sports, with specialist teachers and coaches.

The school boasts well-maintained sports facilities and grounds. Sports are offered at both the competitive and the recreational level to cater for learners with different abilities.

Annual Inter-house competitions are held in swimming, volleyball, netball, hockey and cross-country. The inter-house gala is one of the biggest events on the school calendar with all houses supporting their teams. As many learners as possible are encouraged to participate in the inter-house events and a lot of fun is had by all.

Team awards, merit awards, half colours and full colours are awarded for dedication and excellence in sport.
