It offers after school care facilities. We offer an inspirational experience to our learners in a safe and secure family school.

The school offers both on-site and off-site facilities. Our teaching staff is professional and firmly believes in lifelong learning. Our estate staff ensures that the school grounds are safe and impeccably neat. An effective special needs education unit ensures that the educational needs of all learners are addressed. We also have a professional sports department and a music department.

There is a fine balance between academics, culture, sport and the spiritual aspect of school life at Herbert Hurd Primary School.

We have developed a co-curricular programme that focuses on more than competitive activities. We follow a dynamic, holistic physical education programme. We offer annual oratory opportunities. We annually host numerous music concerts that demonstrate the development in our choirs and brass band. Various Derby Days give abundant learners the opportunity to develop team spirit. We teach all our learners swimming as a life skill in our indoor aquatics centre.

Just imagine how your child can glow in such an exciting and stimulating environment, seventy years after our school bell rang for the first day at a promising, vibrant new school.

SUSTAINABILITY AT HERBERT HURD PRIMARY SCHOOL

Herbert Hurd Primary School is one of the most sustainable schools in Gqeberha. Our learner admission numbers remain constant and  when learners  leave, we immediately enrol learners who want to join this prestigious school family.

The learners see themselves as nurturing learners who behave with self-control, consideration and care for other learners. They communicate politely at all times, think critically about ideas and actions, are self directed and can work independently. They accept challenges and persevere until a project has been completed with finesse and excellence. Our learners are always encouraged to cooperate with teachers and peers. A creative approach to solving problems is honed. 

Learners at Herbert Hurd are prepared to effortlessly bridge the gap between primary school and high school.

TEN CORE LIFE SKILLS PRACTISED AT HERBERT HURD PRIMARY SCHOOL

At Hebert Hurd Primary School, we believe in equipping our learners with the necessary skills to succeed in life. That is why we focus on teaching ten core life skills that are essential for personal and academic growth. These skills include critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, teamwork, time management, self-awareness, adaptability, leadership, creativity, and resilience. By practising these skills, our students are better prepared to face any challenges that come their way and achieve their goals.

QUOTE TO REFLECT ON AND AUGMENT IN 2024

“Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill 2024 with all the forgotten things from 2023 - the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.”
- Peggy Toney Horton - author (adapted)
