JTC The Alpha Leo Club consists of various schools within the Uitenhage and Despatch area who are committed to sowing the seeds of love.

PHLY Thread

Phly Thread hopes to be in the face of ‘changing’, perhaps one life in a day, a week or even a year; as a victory over change can be no less significant whether the number effected is small or astronomical: change has been brought about.  In an attempt at promoting anti-bullying behaviour, Phly Thread hosts G2G (girl to girl) evenings  for all grade 10-12 learners.  The aim of the evening is to show the value of common ground amongst girls; that they all share heart ache, disappointment, trials and diversity as emerging adults.

The band are a hip, cool and creative group.  




Chess at Riebeek is fun, challenging and co-operative.  The girls help each other improve their game and these analytical ladies are admired.
