  • House Structures

We have adopted the “House structure” at Prestige College to motivate learners to commit themselves to participate and at the same time promote a positive competition spirit. There are 4 houses. Learners and teachers are divided equally into different houses. The houses compete against each other throughout the year on different levels of competition as well as in diverse activities like house sports, swimming gala but also academic activities like Bible Quiz and Spelling Bee. Each house is also responsible to host one of the big events at Prestige College.

Manamela House

Mr. Manamela was the first hostel father of Prestige College and retired at the age of 92. He was a person that we all looked up too but he was also a staunch disciplinarian. Mr Manamela can be considered a legend in the beginning years of the school.
