A Coffee for A Bursary

It doesn’t take much to make a difference in someone’s life.

If each of our alumni donates the equivalent of one coffee each week, together we can shape the future for so many pupils in need.

Donate a cup, change tomorrow:

Pool upgrade incoming!

As a provincial powerhouse in water polo, we’re taking training to the next level by building a state of the art aquatic facility. A 30m x 25m, indoor heated pool, big enough for 2 matches or 2 sets of training, plus change rooms, and a new Student Pause Area. Advantage, Herzlia!

To donate towards our goal,

Messages from the Foundation
The Herzlia Way.
We can’t predict our pupil’s and community’s future. But we can shape it.



Not every child is going to be the next Serena Williams or Michael Phelps. That’s why, at Herzlia, victory isn’t about who wins the league, it’s about pupils getting involved and enhancing their physical and mental wellbeing. We encourage pupils to engage in healthy activities that promote a balanced lifestyle; whether a team sport or a more individual activity, such as an early morning trail run, followed by sunrise Tefillah. Our diverse offering gives pupils opportunities to learn valuable educational, personal, team and life skills in a way that truly resonates.

We’re proud of:
  • Superb in-house and outsourced coaches, including our nationally acclaimed water polo coaches who’ll continue our development as a provincial powerhouse in our flagship sport. 
  • High-end facilities that are continually developed and upgraded.
  • A world-class Esport centre for participation in international Esport leagues.
  • Partnerships with expert providers like Playball and Aquasharks Swimming.
  • Upskilling teachers to be effective and successful sports coaches.
  • Sport Tours to Gqeberha and Grahamstown.
  • Our strong presence at the Israel Maccabi Games.
  • Our newly appointed Head of Aquatics will take swimming and water polo to the next level.
How it comes to life:
  • Our offering includes water polo, surfing, mountain biking, swimming, soccer, futsol, tennis, netball, basketball, trail running, cycling, hockey, cricket, golf, table tennis, chess and Esport.
  • Onsite facilities include the Aquatic Centre, pool, multi-purpose sports hall with fully equipped gym, multi-purpose school halls, mini astroturf courts, and a golf driving and putting range.
  • Our world-class Esport centre has 12 high specced gaming computers where pupils compete in international leagues and develop team and collaborative skills, strategy and discipline.
  • Our most enviable facility is our position at the foot of Devils Peak with trails (and a view of Table Mountain and Lions Head) that few schools in the world could call their own.
  • Other outdoor facilities include soccer and cricket at Van Riebeeck Park, mountain biking and trailing running on Table Mountain, tennis at our Sarah Bloch facility, surfing at Muizenberg and Milnerton beach, and golf at King David-Mowbray course.
  • We offer surfing, mountain biking and trail running and have annual family surf days.
  • School galas and athletics days get everyone involved and engaged.
  • We embrace diversity through an InterFaith Sports Day with schools from different backgrounds.
  • Sport Tours to Gqeberha and Grahamstown as well as a strong presence in the Israel Maccabi Games.
