Westering High is a school that believes in giving back. Our learners are encouraged to serve both the school and the community.

At school, the learners are able to serve in the Tuck-shop, Media Centre, Book room, Sound room and Kit room. Here the pupils learn responsibility as well as various skills that will serve them well in their future.

We boast a very active Interact group who do constant fund raising for various charities around town. They are always involved in Iron Man and Iron Kids during first term and with Uncle Jumbos in the fourth term. They visit Old age homes and Children’s homes where they provide entertainment and refreshments. There is a weekly collection of food stuff which is donated to our school pantry which feeds the needy in our community.

We have an Enviro Club which collects and recycles paper, plastic, tin and tetra pack. They are involved in rehabilitation of the penguins, do beach clean ups and ensure that our school has beautiful gardens as well.

Our First Aid group are trained every year by professionals and are graded after completing their exams. The pupils are on standby for all our sport matches as well as helping out at school if the need arises. Our learners are also involved outside of school where some of them ride with paramedics to prepare themselves for future careers.

Umpiring for both Cricket and hockey is also offered at Westering High. Or learners are trained and write exams as required. Cricket scoring is another way in which our pupils can be involved without playing a sport. Many of our young ladies go on to score for cricket teams when they leave school.

Our school runs a successful tutoring system where our students spend time in the afternoons helping the learners who are struggling academically. Many of our top students are involved with Mathematics, Science, Accounting and Language tutoring at school.

SWAG is our Christian Society (Saved With Amazing Grace). The Swag board are involved with weekly Bible Education for the whole school as well as Prayer meetings and worship during breaks.

The Swag annual camp is normally a highlight for the learners and staff. The Worship team is very busy and takes part in inter school Worship evenings.

The school has a BIG BLEED once a term where our pupils and teachers donate blood when SANBS visits the school for a day. We have a group of about 6 grade 11 learners who are trained to be peer promoters who help with the information, encouragement and running of the donation for the day.
