Admission

Open Day - 2021

At Rhenish, we pride ourselves on equipping our girls with critical skills like adaptability, out-of-the-box thinking, the courage to face challenges, the courage to fail and then to learn from failure so as to achieve success.

And so, in planning our Open Day for 2021, we too have had to think ‘outside the box’.  How can we give you a taste of Rhenish, a glimpse of the incredible girls that make this school unique and that make the opportunity to attend Rhenish Girls’ High a gift of generosity and love to your daughter?

We chose to do this through a video prepared by our girls, featuring our girls.  It is as close as we could get to an Open Day.  You can view the video here:

eLearning Devices

See the specs for the eLearning devices required.

Recommended Devices

Recommended Model Options

NOTE: We are still not recommending laptops or notebook computers for the learners since the elearning process has not advanced that far yet, and the school expects to still only use tablet based features and functions for 2020. The school is also not in a position to support learner laptop devices yet.

PLEASE get a body glove for the device to protect the screen.

Please: ensure that you insure your daughter's device.  Breakages do occur and, much as we would prefer that it was not so, security may be an issue if the girls are not super vigilant with their belongings.
