“One of the things I enjoy about Holy Rosary School is the sport since there are a lot of options. Once you join a team, you get to meet different people, either at matches or during practices. You get to make a lot of new friends.” TANA

"I wish I was in this school"
Over the years, we have built up first-class sporting facilities. We have a 25 m swimming pool, a rowing boat house at Victoria Lake Club, a hockey astro, netball, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts.
Our coaches are experts in their chosen sport, with achievements at provincial or national level. They give us the edge.
We get going early with a preseason camp at the Roodeplaat Clubhouse . Just past Bedfordview on the N3, Victoria Lake Club is our home-from-home. We participate in four major championship regattas each year – Gauteng Schools’ Rowing Championships, South African Schools’ Boat Race, Buffalo Regatta and South African Schools’ Rowing Championships.
