A very warm welcome to the staff and learners at PGHS. It is a brand new year and we at PGHS are looking forward to a year filled with success, joy and hope.

2020 was a difficult year for everyone, especially for the class of 2020. Through hard work, discipline and perseverance, our teachers and learners excelled in ensuring we were ready for the 2020 matric final examination. It is with honor and pride that we announce our matric pass rate of 98.4 %. Given the trials and tribulations faced in 2020, the class of 2020 can hold their heads up high and say “we made it”. Congratulations! We wish you well in your future endeavors and hope you keep the PGHS flag flying high.

It is with deep sadness that we have to inform the staff and learners, of the passing away of our very own, Nelisa Mqadi.
