Message from the Governing Body
What a privilege it is to be involved in one of the top schools in the Western Cape/country!
Our school’s motto, “Excellence in a changing world”, has been guiding our school for the past thirty years.
Excellence is not a skill; it is a habit.
The Governing Body wants to ensure that excellence will be attained at every level of the school.
To the educators of Parel Vallei High School:
This task is facilitated by the continued dedication of the principal, senior management team and educators. We value the consistent passion so evident in the carrying out of your duties.
We are a product of our choices.
My heartfelt thanks go to the previous governing bodies for the choices they made. The Parel Vallei product shines on every level: academics, culture and sport. Our task of directing PV has been made so much lighter.
To the learners:
You are the hub of the school. The Governing Body is supremely aware of the fact that any decisions made by us should benefit you.
To the parents:
Thank you for entrusting your child to PV to bring out only the best in him/her. Your support and passion are most important to make this a reality. Thank you for your financial support. Without this we would not be able to maintain the quality of teaching and facilities from which we now benefit.
To future parents:
PV is committed to ensuring that your child develops intellectually, physically and spiritually in his/her unique way – we are not a school of mass production churning out clones according to a set image. The emphasis is on the individual who will emerge from a PV education as a distinctive product in his/her own right.
To past pupils:
PV IS 30!
We look back at rich traditions and look forward to continued co-operation with the PV Union.
We look forward to serving PV.
Ian Malherbe Proud Parel Valleier!
