Does your child find the prospect of high school daunting? For many learners the thought of high school can be overwhelming especially when coming from a relatively small primary school to contemplating a high school in our city, many of which have over a thousand learners. Linkside High School is a school that is small enough to care but big enough to be relevant and competitive, where we opt for quality over quantity.
We operate as a family, offering a “home away from home’ environment that provides a myriad of opportunities for learners who are seeking an opportunity to shine on various platforms. Our teachers strive to bring out the best in each individual and encourage all our learners to realise their full potential as stated in our mission statement. Our motto Ad Astra / “Reach for the stars” underscores the belief that each child has extraordinary potential to reach enormous heights.
We are dedicated to empowering all learners to find the keys to unlocking their individual talents, be it academic, sporting or cultural. Our school’s culture of “making a difference” has culminated in three of our learners having been crowned “Miss Port Elizabeth”, each serving the communities of our city with compassion and dedication: Bianca-Ann Harper (Class of 2004), Nureen Hoosein (Class of 2012) and most recently, Lu-jade Pienaar (Class of 2015).
At Linkside, we promote responsible citizenship, community awareness and social concern which has led the school to produce three Junior City Council Mayors: Lerato Ramollo (2000), Melissa Welgemoed (2017), JCC Mayor and Head Boy, Gerard Stuurman (2021) together with our latest elected Councilors Morgan Swart and Teboho Taaso .The Linkside experience allows our learners to make lasting memories, form life-long bonds of friendship and navigate a steady course into the future as we prepare our learners to become successful, compassionate, confident citizens of the world – the men and women who will lead the next generation.
