Pinetown Boys’ high school participates in this nonprofit organization which teaches students to become better public speakers, learn leadership skills through countless hours of practice. Each year our top learners in each category (Prepared speech, Evaluation and Impromptu speech.) are invited to take part in a bigger event combing the winners from other schools and clubs for top honours.
Every year, Pinetown Boys High School showcases a grand musical production in collaboration with our sister school, Pinetown Girls High School. The learners are included in the production process by being exposed to directing, script writing, sound and lighting technologies, painting of sets and advertising. Learners are also given the opportunity to choreograph dances and showcase their talents with musical instruments, all under the guidance of internal and external music teachers, voice coaches and producers.
