The school starts on Monday mornings at 07:40 and the rest of the week 7:20 and ends at 13:30, Monday through to Friday.  Learners that need to leave earlier during a school day will only be allowed to leave the premises if a parent has signed them out at the Admin Office.  This must be arranged beforehand, early mornings when school starts.

 

School uniform, school track suits, HPR Shirts, baggies and sport bags are available at HPR’s clothing shop on the premises.  The shop is in the main building, in the front corner next to the swimming pool.  You are welcome to park in front of the school and to use the swimming pool gate, (small gate) next to Gate 4.  We urge you to buy all necessities in 2022 if possible.  This way we can prevent the early year rush and long queues.  Please bring your child with to do fitting.  No refunds and/or no exchanges.

 

The regular hours of the clothing shop as from 16 January 2023 will be made available at a later stage.  Speed point/card facilities are available at the clothing store. 

The green blazer is compulsory for every learner at Piet Retief High School.  The blazer and tie are to be worn on Mondays.  On Wednesday afternoons, the hostel learners must also wear the blazer and tie with their uniform when going to town. School bags are sold at the HPR clothing store.  All learners are obliged to use the prescribed bag only.  This is a bag with seven divisions.  No textbooks will be issued to learners that do not have the prescribed school bag.  No graffiti or tippex on school bags will be tolerated.

Shop will open on 21 November 2022 on appointment only as explained in attached letter.
