The school sporting world has been rocked this week with news that all winter sport has to cease, just as we were starting to get into the swing of things again.
Fortunately, our school has many activities apart from sport, where the learners can express themselves. The ACTS Christian organisation hosted a Bible quiz. Congratulations to the following learners that won: M. Barnard, M. Jele, M le Roux, and L. Mattison. The ACTS will also start their four-week video-based Bible study this week.
The Interact club as always has also been hard at work. The one group made Covid-screens for the school on Saturday while the other group had a food drive at Pick and Pay for child welfare. We appreciate all our learners that try to make the world a better place. Have a good week and keep safe.
“Leadership starts with you” was one of the many phrases we learnt the weekend of our leadership camp. On 13 September 2019, we left VHS for Dundee. The excitement buzzed through the bus as we reached Elandsheim Resort. A big thank you to Ms Venter, Boshoff and Mr van den Heever for accompanying us. The weekend not only taught us about leadership but also how to work as a unit together. These newfound skills will help the leadership group of 2020 serve and build VHS to higher heights!
During the annual Academic Awards Evening on Thursday, 10 October, the head leaders for 2020 were announced. The deputy head girls, Silindokhle Ntuli and Minenhle Ngema and deputy head boys, Siyabonga Sibiya and Khetho Mpotshane will help the head leaders, Melissa Hibbert and Khaya Khuzwayo. We wish them the best in building VHS to higher heights.
On Friday, 11 October the girls’ cricket team went on a tour to Empangeni. In their 1st match, they played against Grantleigh and lost by 1 wicket. They bounced back in their 2nd match to beat Empangeni High school by 31 runs. Thank you to Ms Boshoff and Mr Boock for accompanying the girls.
In ons samelewing is dit nie buitengewoon om iemand in nood te sien nie. By VHS het Interact en die school probeer teruggee aan die sameleing om hierdie nood te help verlig. Baie dankie aan elkeen wat gehelp het.
Elke jaar help die skool die kinderwelsyn om die nood te verlig. Verlede week het die skool kinders gevra om nie-bederfbare kos skool toe te bring. Hierdie kos is Vrydag, 18 Oktober in ontvangs geneem deur Nokuthula Buthelezi van die Kinderwelsyn in Vryheid.
Christmas is a time for giving but too often there are children who are not blessed with presents. As in every year, VHS learners participated in the Santa Shoebox drive and pledged 53 boxes. These boxes are filled with goodies for a specific child who is in Môrester Children’s Home in Ladysmith.
Ons doen die santa shoebox projek by ons skool. As jy ‘n santa shoebox wil pledge of net items of geld wil pledge, laat weet my asb. Dis sodat arm kinders elkeen ‘n skoenboks op kersdag kan kry.
Die items wat in ‘n boks moet kom is:
- Uitrusting klere
- Al die items moet nuut wees.
Jy hoef nie ‘n vol boks te pledge nie, enige van die items op die lys is welkom. As jy nie tyd het om goed te koop nie kan jy die geld gee en ek sal die items koop en die kinders by ons skool sal die boks oortrek.
