Extramural activities

Krugersdorp High School musicals take place under the guidance of well-trained and qualified teachers, who are passionate about cultural activities and academic training.

The senior musical has grown to new heights and now takes place at the Roodepoort Civic Theatre. The junior musical takes place in the third term at the school and gives our aspiring talents the chance to step up and the confidence to audition for the senior musical. Learners also participate in the RACA Festival, giving them the opportunity to showcase their incredible abilities. When the glee club entered, it won the national tryouts and has been invited to perform internationally.

Krugersdorp High School offers other cultural activites, which include: debating, media club, Helping Hands community outreach and the science club.


Our girls’ res is home to 80 learners and has two girls per room. Being in res gives the girls a sense of independence while developing a sisterhood and comradery between them.

Our boys’ res is home to 100 boys set up on the same principle as the girls res: two boys per room, which again gives our young men a sense of independence while developing  brotherhood and comradery.

Res gives the learners the opportunity to get involved in several school activities and also includes multiple prep rooms with supervised homework sessions in the afternoons and/or evenings.
