History of The Rhenish Journal

Paper III essays.

They are what started this whole thing.

Paper III is written twice a year by the whole school, yet almost none of the essays from these exams ever see the light of day.

And what about creative works in general? What about board art? What about poetry, what about the art from the P.J. Olivier art students? Where is their art displayed? Where can Rhenishers find and consume Rhenish creativity?

And so the Journal was born as an answer to this question – a place to celebrate creativity and to share the pieces that we create.

In 2016, the Journal posted its first post with one person on the team.

Now, we are moving into a new and exciting time, where the next generation of Journalers take over.
