‘It’s the FINAL COUNTDOWN…!’ que trumpets and dramatic music. By the time this is printed, our learners will have less than a week left of their final exams of 2017!
By this time next week, they will be free citizens and their teachers, the patient captives of marking, finalizing reports, checking and rechecking everything. Ons wil ons leerders aanmoeding om nie nou tou op te gee nie en vas te byt vir hierdie laaste stukkie van die eksamen.
We also remind learners and parents alike that it is of the utmost importance that all textbooks, readers and library books be returned to the school in a good condition so that we may pass them on to other learners next year.
Ons wil graag ouers aanmoedig om die jaarvergadering by te woon op 21 November, volgende week. Dit is belangrik vir die skool dat ouers betrokke is by hierdie vergaderings waar daar gestem word oor belangrike besluite aangaande die skool en skoolfonds.
At Vryheid High, we believe in a three-pronged approach to producing well-rounded and successful individuals. You, the parents of these individuals, are a key role player and decision maker as part of that process. We would, therefore, like to encourage that all our parents attend our annual AGM on Tuesday.

Daar is ‘n stilte wat oor die skool heers en leerders is hard besig met hul finale eksamens en onderwysers is druk besig om hierdie kennis na te gaan met ‘n rooi pen.
Here at VHS the whole school has boarded the exam train and it is full steam ahead. We are already one week into things and the first marks have started to stream in for capturing.
Die biblioteek is voor skool en pouse vol studente met ‘n sagte gons wat in die atmosfeer hang soos die leerders laaste stukkies werk vir mekaar verduidelik of vir hulself fluister. We would like to encourage the learners to also make use of the library after school as a study venue. The library is usually open until at least 14:00.
Ons matrieks is ook al so te sê halfpad met hulle eindjaareksamen en die terugvoering van ons leerders, is baie positief. Teachers await their matric students eagerly outside the hall to get feedback on papers and there are often sighs of relief, when learners report back with positivity. We are still keeping our matric learners in our thoughts and prayers. Aanhouer, wen soos die skoollied dit beaam.
Ons herinner ouers en leerders om asseblief hulle samewerking te gee met die invorder van handboeke, leesboeke en biblioteek boeke. We would like to remind parents and learners that we are collecting textbooks, reading books and library books and that these should please be returned in a timely manner as per the collection schedule.

21 November AGM 18:00
It was a busy week at VHS with plenty of activities all over Northern-KZN. This past Saturday the prospective Grade 8’s and their parents had successful interviews at school. Thank you to Mr Patrick Friend for the information shared on behalf of the SGB.
Baie geluk aan die volgende leerlinge wat sertifikate ontvang het na afloop van die Taalbond vir Tweetaligheid eksamen: Marion Filter, Kirsten Hellberg en Catia Marques.
Plenty of sport activities took place this past week with the soccer playing against Dundee, Sevens at the Felixton Festival where we lost in the semi-final of the cup draw to Sarel Cilliers. The tennis finished their season second in Northern Natal, narrowly pipped by Ferrum. Girls Cricket was played where the girls won Newcastle by 7 wickets, but unfortunately lost to Ferrum by 10 wickets.
Ons senior seuns krieketspanne het Donderdagaand teen mekaar gespeel waar die ondersteuning van die ouers opvallend was. Dit is ‘n merkwaardige prestasie dat beide ons 1ste en 2de span in die semi-finale van die Noord-Natal liga speel. Goeie vertonings deur verskeie spelers in beide spanne het vir genoeg opwinding gesorg. Die 1ste span wen uiteindelik met 50 lopies.
Activities for the week: Trial exam: 8 Sep – 29 Sep.
This weekend we had the last of our winter sport against Pongola and we ended the season on a high note winning all our matches, before returning to our studies and marking as the exam is in full swing here at Vryheid High School.
The results were as follow:
u/15 27 – 9
1st team 38 – 8
1st team 2 – 1
u/15 29 – 12
1st team 31 – 10
Ons wil al die afrigters, ouers en ondersteuners hartlik bedank wat een of elke wedstryd van VHS kom ondersteun het. Julle toewyding en ondersteuning is wat elke wedstryd vir ons leerling die moeite werd maak. Julle vorm almal deel van ‘n span wat hierdie skool se naam hoog hou. Baie dankie!
As I have already mentioned we are in full exam swing here at Vryheid High School. Teachers are marking up a storm and the learners are all hard at work proving their academic prowess. We wish every student, teacher and parent good luck for this time. We hope that all goes well.
