“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.
