Pretoria High School for Girls
The history of Pretoria High School for Girls dates back to October 1902, when 106 eager young girls from the Staats Model School walked to their new school in Visagie Street. The first Headmistress, Miss Edith Aitken, was responsible for introducing many traditions still upheld by the School today. During the 21 years she spent at PHSG, she brought with her the motto “Prosit Spes Labori” – “We Work in Hope”, and introduced the Iris as the school emblem. It was her desire to create an educational institution based on inclusiveness and diversity, a dream which was ultimately only fully realised 90 years later.
