Our 1st team cricket boys returned home from the Weston Cricket festival as the points Champions once again. Excellent performances from the boys made for a successful tour and excellent results were recorded. Keegan Meier was a standout batter, scoring four scores higher than 50 runs over 6 matches. The boys played brilliant cricket and many compliments were handed out to the boys. On the final day VHS claimed the batting, fielding and bowling cap, with Keegan Meier taking the batting and fielding cap and Ralf Niebuhr taking the bowlers cap. This is the 3rd year in a row that VHS has won the points section at the Weston Festival.
Die dogters krieket het ook ‘n toernooi bygewoon met uitstekende reëlings wat getref was deur Mnr. Boock. Op die eerste dag het die dogters teen Felixton testaan gekom en het in ‘n naelbyt stryd die wedstryd verloor. Ongelukkig het die weer ‘n groot rol gespeel, maar reëlings was goed getref en die dames het self n bietjie Aksie-krieket gespeel wat vir vele pret gesorg het. Daar was ook n Afrigtings-kursus wat deur Denisha Devnarain (Ex-Protea speler) aangebied is. Dankie aan Mnr. Boock vir al sy moeite met die reëlings.
Cara Klingenberg represented Vryheid High School at the SANESA Horse Riding Championship in Kyalami, Johannesburg during this holiday. She and her horse, Bakgat Juror, did Vryheid High School proud by winning the elementary dressage.
There is only one short week before our matric learners start their preparation for their final exams and we wish them all the motivation and energy to persist in this final leg of their high school careers. It is, however, not just our matrics who have a limited time to prepare before exams start; we would like to remind all our learners to start early and reap the rewards of preparation.
