The 24th of January, the Grade 6’s decided to trade their classroom for the pool and water slides at McArthur’s.

The focus of the day was to have some fun in the sun!

All excited, the learners were ready with their slip slops, costumes and towels! Even the teachers were ready for the beautiful scenery of their new classroom for the day.

Agenda for the day:

  • Spending the whole day in the pool.

  • Sliding down the water slides, to see who made the biggest splash.

  • and having a picnic with friends.

Talk about perfect!

The smiles on the learners’ faces were shining as bright as the sun! It was pleasing to see how all the learners came together to join in the fun!

It was such a lovely day.

We were blessed with awesome learners, awesome weather and too much fun!

On Wednesday, 5 February 2020, our Grade 6 and 7 piano pupils were treated to a mini excursion to the Feather Market Hall. This, being the 12th Annual Open Day for Schools across Port Elizabeth, our learners were mesmerized by the sight and sounds of the humungous Feather Market Pipe Organ. Along with this was a pipe organ demonstration and a duet by Dr Erika Bothma on piano and Professor Albert Troskie on pipe organ.

Various ensembles from local schools and tertiary institutions also performed, such as the Ikava Vocal Ensemble, the Eastern Cape Children’s Choir and the Pearson Brass Ensemble. A musical and educational outing indeed.

Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles. 

This year Alexander Road High decided to celebrate Mole Day with a technology twist. The pupils took part in a coding competition using a game called TANKS.  The teams were required to code their way through a series of levels with the winning team being the team that progressed the furthest in a set time limit.  We are pleased to announce that HHPS won this competition with one of our teams reaching Level 16, closely followed by another one of our teams who complet...
