Great fun on the track and golf course
On Wednesday, 7 February hosted the annual relay race. The atmosphere on and off the track was crackling with excitement with each school cheering on their team. Even though the rain started falling it did not dampen the excitement of the last two events. The results are as follows: Piet Retief High School, Pionier Hoërskool, Ferrum High School, Vryheid High School, Vryheid Landbou School, Dundee High School, Inkamana High School and Sarel Cilliers. Thank you to all the organisers and participating schools for helping making this event a huge success.
Thank you to Cameron Boock for presenting a Hockey Umpiring Workshop on Friday.
Saturday, 10 Februarie het Vryheid Hoërskool se netbalspanne ‘n gholfdag gereël om geld in te samel vir hul toer na Pretoria gedurende die Aprilvakansie. Die kinders en opvoeders wil net dankie sê vir almal wat kom gholf speel het. ‘n Groot blyk van waardering aan die volgende borge: NTT Toyota, PicknPay, Cox en Vennote, Steers, TWK, Afgri, Van der Nest Apteek, Three F Meats, Conway Johnson, Optemetric Centre Pongola, Shellhein Farms, Romans Pizza, Wimpy, BMG, Klets, Vryheid Car Wash, Be Spoilt, Topsport, Meatmasters and Kerry Keeve. Without your donations this day would not have been so successful.
Saturday some of our athletes travelled to Piet Retief to compete against Pionier, Piet Retief, Landbou, Ferrum, Volksrust and Pongola. Results of this event will be posted once it is released but two highlights were Marion Filter (gold for shotput) and Manelisi Sibisi (gold in 100m and 200m). On this note, a correction is due. Last week it was incorrectly stated that Aaron Filter was 1st in shotput. It, however, was Marion Filter. Apologies for any distress caused by this error.

We would like to congratulate all our learners who participated in the Midmar Mile over the weekend. A special mention to two of our grade 12 learners, Karl Kohlmeyer and Kirsten Verschuuren who both completed their second 8 miler event.
They would like to thank the Vryheid community, as well as, all friends and families for their generous and loyal support. This enabled them to raise R10 000 for their respective charities. Well done, Kirsten and Karl.
