This week saw VHS holding their annual Interhouse gala and Interhouse athletics. It was amazing to see how our learners gave it their all to come out victorious and sometimes needing to accept defeat. VHS learners are really beginning to grasp the values we are trying to instil in them.
Op Woensdag, 23 Januarie het Grey-King, Van Riebeeck en Retief teen mekaar meegeding in die water. Tussen die ervare swemmers wat 400m (16 lengtes) geswem het en die wat vir die eerste keer deelgeneem het, het almal ‘n medalje verdien.
Die bordjie skop en binneband items het vir groot pret en plesier gesorg. Geluk aan Grey-King wat as wenners aangewys is. Die volgende kinders het trofeës verower: Junior Victrix – Bianka Hellberg; Junior Victor – Xander Richards; Senior Victrix – Kirsten Hellberg en Senior Victor – JD Hattingh en Morné Odendaal. Baie dankie aan Mnr Moolman en sy span vir al die reëlings.
On Thursday, 24 January, the houses competed against each other on the athletics track. The spirit on and off the track was maintained and encouraged by the grade 12 learners. These children provided some good laughs between their creative outfits and continuous participation.
Yusaf Khan wowed the crowd with his high jump abilities clearing 1.73m before declaring defeat. Well done to Jaden van Eck and Melissa Hibbert on improving the records in the 300m hurdles and shotput. As always the 100m and relay races had the crowd on their feet. The children enjoyed it when the head leaders competed with the teachers in a relay race! Congratulations to Van Riebeeck who were the victors of the day!
The following learners received trophies: Junior Victrix – Pleasure Matlala; Junior Victor – Jayden van Eck; Senior Victrix – Melissa Hibbert; Senior Victor – Khaya Khuzwayo and Athlete of the day – Melissa Hibbert. Melissa Hibbert (shotput) and Jayden van Eck (300m hurdles) broke records. Thank you to Mr Scholtz and his team for a well-organised and enjoyable day.
Vrydag, 25 Januarie het 36 van ons atlete deelgeneem aan die Filidi Distrik kompetisie. VHS wag nog vir die uitslae en sal op ‘n latere stadium meer hieroor sê.
