At PHSG we understand the need for parents to find a “home away from home” for their daughters. And so we offer learners a weekly boarding facility in the form of two hostels, North Lodge and School House. These gracious old buildings, erected even before the school building itself arose, still echo with the voices of generations of girls who have made their home here.

While the hostels have distinctive “characters” and compete rather passionately in volleyball, soccer and water polo – the black-clad School House girls versus the “In-Pink” North Lodge girls – they also have much that unites them. At the start of each year, both hostels create newspaper clothing and show off their disposable couture at a “fashion show”. They enjoy picnics and braais at the pool and take the “newbies” on their first Sunday outing to Hatfield. Each hostel boasts a Head Girl and a Deputy Head Girl, voted in by the boarders themselves, and these leaders are instrumental in affirming the link between the boarders, the staff, and the school, as well as seeing to the well-being of their peers and charges.

Teachers who are resident at the school act as Hostelmistresses and are on duty throughout the week, so that there is always a guiding adult presence for the girls. Matrons are in charge of the kitchens, to create memorable meals and generally run the hostels, which are situated within the lush, leafy school grounds. A Hostel Secretary, based in the school Reception, takes care of hostel logistics and is the first port of call for parents.

Old Girl boarders remember their school days with tremendous nostalgia because, at both North Lodge and School House, they forge friendships and establish ties that have endured long after they have left Girls High.
