We begin this new term with great sadness as one of our educators Mrs P Schulte passed away during the holidays on 8 July 2016. During her 40 year career at this school many generations passed through her hands. Our condolences to all her family and friends. We offer you this comfort: the footprints she left in many learners, colleagues and community members’ hearts can never be erased and so her legacy will live on.
On this ‘Mandela Day’ we also have new beginnings as new staff join the VHS team. Welcome to Mrs I van der Walt and Miss F Rawat in the Maths department and Mr C van Rhyn (student-teacher) in the English department. May your stay at VHS be a happy, fulfilling experience. At the end of last term Mrs K Bennie and Mrs I Venter left and we wish them well for their futures elsewhere.
It is going to be a very busy term and we remind the matriculants that the trial examinations begin on 5 September, so they should let their focus be on preparing well for these examinations.
To all educators, staff and learners of VHS welcome back and make the most of this term. In Mandela’s words: “Let your choices reflect your dreams and not your fears!”
