The ACTS group (Association for Christian Teachers and Students) put on an uplifting Easter performance for VHS, NRS and Vryheid Public learners and staff on the last day of school last term. Khulani Nyawo preached the Easter gospel between the acts. The 31-strong gospel choir opened the Easter ceremony followed by thirty members of the dance group dancing to two worship songs. The ten members of the drama team put on a moving skit depicting a young woman trapped in the world through her sin (symbolized by black ribbons) and Jesus removing them from her and taking the sin upon himself as He was crucified. The performance was concluded by all ACTS members singing and dancing to the song ”Celebrate”. VHS would like to thank VRYHEID MEATMASTERS for their generous donation toward the ACTS t-shirts.

VHS’ 1st hockey girls had an enriching and exciting learning opportunity at Cap Discovery just outside Pretoria during the Easter holidays from 6 – 9 April. With the help of professional coaching, Shawn Hulley, Peter Ross and Sheldon Rostrom, we returned with enthusiasm, new skills and a stronger love for the game. We would like to thank the Vryheid community for all your support during our burger sales making this tour possible for us. A big thank you to our bus driver, Mr Gerhard van den Berg together with our parents and Miss Boshoff for your input in our lives. Tante Renate, thank you for being our coach and mentor and always reminding us to believe in ourselves.
