The following activities are on offer for both boys and girls as part of the extramural programme:
Cookery, Art, Crafts, Choir, Dance (Jazz, Tap, Modern), Speech and Drama, Drama Club, Guitar and Recorder.

In addition to this, children can also join the Service Club and the Environmental Club. Two of our "stand-out" cultural activities are the annual Supper Theatre production in which every child participates and the annual North Durban Art Exhibition.


The art room with its amazing position overlooking the field, and views from The Bluff to Umhlanga, has inspired much creativity in the children and the standard of our art has improved out of all recognition.

Virginia Prep hosts an annual Durban North Spring Art Exhibition in the third term. This is opened by a guest speaker and invited schools display their art.

Virginia is proud to be an eco-school. We were awarded our eco-school green flag in 2008 and our International Green Flag in 2011.

We have many projects on the go such as the recycling of paper, tins, glass and plastic. We are trying to eradicate our alien invasive plants and turn our gardens into an indigenous corridor between Danville Park and Virginia Bush.

From the M4 (Ruth First Highway), one takes the Virginia off-ramp (opposite Virginia Airport). Halfway around the circle, proceed up Hinton Grove (+/- 200m) and turn right into Margaret Maytom Avenue. The school is situated on the left with magnificent views of the ocean.
