We, the 2018 headboy and headgirl of Vryheid High School, would like to take this opportunity to thank the school and our fellow scholars for the roles that they have entrusted us with.
It is truly an honour to find ourselves in such an enriching position. We take on these positions realizing the responsibility we have and also the impact we may have on the school and, therefore, also our community.
On behalf of the leaders for 2018, each one is extremely grateful for their position and cannot wait to learn from this experience. A bond has already formed between the leaders and we look forward to what adventure lies ahead for us. We know we have each other’s backs and can count on one another. We are no longer just a group of leaders, we have become a family whose aim it is to make our school proud in our actions and to bring about a positive change.
The pillars on which Vryheid High School is built are Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence; we would like to grow in these values and make them evident in our actions. It is our mission to set an example to the learners of Vryheid High School and be good role models, that they can look up to and come to when they are in need or require guidance. We wish that the learners embrace these values and that they become part of their daily lives.
Something very near to our hearts is the spirit that is experienced at our school. Our goal is to encourage everyone to become more involved in school activities such as sport and culture. We hope to make each child feel at home and like they have found a place where they belong.
To our 2018 grade 8s, we are excited to welcome you into the Vryheid High School family. We are thrilled that you will be joining us next year and you can be assured that you will feel at home very soon. There has already been a lot of preparation made to make your stay memorable and exciting. Always remember to be true to yourself and be proud to be in Vryheid High. Green is not a colour, it is a calling
To all the current students and new-comers of next year, enjoy your holiday thoroughly. Enjoy your time away from school and be safe at your various destinations. Have a good rest so that you will be ready for the next year awaiting us. It will be busy, exciting and definitely memorable.
May our school be blessed in 2018, may we use all the opportunities that come our way to the best of our abilities and make our school better every day. We wish the staff and learners a blessed holiday, Christmas and new year.
Nicole Mühl and Sihle Mathenjwa
