Lowveld High is a Nelspruit high school of excellence that has been providing a high standard of holistic education to the Mbombela community for nearly 50 years. Built as a result of the requirements of the region’s English-speaking community, Lowveld High School’s history has always reflected the history of South Africa as a whole. Today, our governing body, parents, staff and learners work towards, and benefit from, a truly South African school where diversity is the norm.
On New Year’s Eve 1991/1992 the School was bombed by right-winged activists as we had decided to admit learners of colour to our school. Notwithstanding this type of violent opposition, the Governing Body, parents, staff and learners stood firm and today we are a truly South African school where diversity is the norm.
