Jeppe High School for Girls


Our Orienteering team participates in its own inter-schools league which takes place in a variety of venues through-out Johannesburg.

Our girls frequently make it to the semi-finals and finals.

Orienteering takes place in the Term 1 and Term 4 and incorporates both cross country and maps skills to finish the course.

Our aim for this sport is to grow the learners knowledge of the sport, to increase the size of the team and to grow the interest within the school.

Orienteering is a running (and walking) sport that is a lot of fun as it involves navigation skills.

It combines a good sense of direction, map- reading skills, strategic thinking and stamina and is a bit like a grown-up treasure hunt.

It was reintroduced at the school in 2015.
