The ACTS (Association for Christian Teachers and Students) group hosted another successful movie night on 30 August. The movie was ‘God is Not Dead 2’, a follow-up of the first movie, screened earlier this year. Attendance was free and voluntary. The lecture room was transformed into a mini movie theatre for learners who arrived with their own delectable snacks and drinks. Our thanks to Kwazi and Siya from Freedom Life Church for their support, as well as Mr. Ngcobo.
On 17 August 2017, we hosted our annual Talent Showcase. Learners of all grades displayed their various talents on stage to the delight of their friends and family in the audience. From singing and dancing to playing the piano and beatboxing, the learners of VHS truly shone throughout the successful evening. Thank you and congratulations to all the participants, the hosts for the evening (Melissa, Thabang and Sinead) and the organisers, Mrs. E. Le Roux, Mr. C van Rhyn and Ms. F. Rawat.
Amidst all the changes in leadership and seasons we still managed to squeeze in a few sport matches as well, with the following results:
VHS 1st team vs Landbou 5 – 2
VHS 2nd team vs Landbou 6 – 1
VHS Girls vs Lanbou Girls 0 – 1
u/15 vs Ferrum – VHS won by 10 wickets
1st team vs Ferrum – VHS won by 50 runs
Girls 2nd team vs Pionier 1st – VHS lost with 8 wickets
Laastens wil ons graag ‘n korreksie maak aan verlede week se nuus aangaande Conrad Jonker. Ons vra onverskoning vir die misverstand. Conrad het wel sy land verteenwoordig, maar nie as deel van die Protea span nie, maar as deel van ‘n uitnodigingspan. Hier is die inligting soos ons dit ontvang het: “The undermentioned members (Conrad Jonker) were selected to represent South Africa for the abovementioned team (SAFBAF) to participate in an International Angling Test against Namibia.”
Ons kan wel met trots aankondig dat Conrad hom baie goed van sy taak gekwyt het en nie net het sy span hulle afdeling gewen nie, maar Conrad is aangekondig as algehele wenner van sy afdeling – die gewig van sy visse gedurende die kompetisie was die swaarste van al die hengelaars.
