On Wednesday,19 Oct and Thursday, 20 Oct we hosted our annual prize-giving ceremonies where learners were rewarded for their academic and other achievements. It is encouraging and rewarding that these ceremonies are very long and there are pages of recipients on these lists as this means VHS is still on the right track and busy shaping winners! We are very proud of all the learners who received prizes at these prestigious events. It is also worth mentioning that the guest speakers at both ceremonies were ex-VHS learners now successful, impressive adults.
