Henley High and Preparatory School: Term 1 - 2015 Highlights

HHPS PRE-PRIMARY NEWS

The Gr R’s and Little Stars of Henley Pre-Primary recently visited the Just Darling Berry Farm in Walkerville. The kids loved the day picking and eating berries. They were rewarded with a yummy raspberry smoothie after a hot day in the fields.

HHPS EASTER MADNESS

Term 1 ended with a bang as the entire school was gripped with a combination of Easter Madness and Holiday Fever!! The Primary School enjoyed a relaxing picnic under the trees with their buddies. The Middle School had all kinds of fun from playing Hangman, Balloon Games to ‘’Onder-handjies klap” and lots of other exciting games. The High School had a Boeresport House-War: River vs Hoepoe consisting of cheerleading, egg races, wheelbarrow races, toffee apples-flour and syrup on your faces, water fights, and tons more. The staff had a funny bunny day and hopped around joining in all the fun!

GRADE 10’S EXCURSION TO THE JHB THEATRE

The Grade 10’s braved it on a trip into Johannesburg Centre to watch a play of their set work book Animal Farm. It was extremely informative and believe that it will help immensely with the understanding of the book.

HIGH SCHOOL AND PRIMARY SCHOOL SWIMMING GALA AND ATHLETICS

Both athletics and swimming season went off well this year in the Primary School as well as the High School, with a series of galas (including Interhouse and Interschools) and various athletics meetings. Interacting with schools on these levels really raises the individual child’s expectation of him or herself and gives the child an opportunity to express themselves and grow in an environment outside of the classroom.

Henley Preparatory School Interhouse Athletics 23 January

The athletes right from Gr 1 all the way through to Gr 7 did their very very best and had super-fun day outside under the scorching sun! Hoepoe was led by Cowboy Cheerleaders and River was led by Pirate Cheerleaders. The House Cup for the day was won by River and the Spirit Cup was won by Hoepoe. Thank you to all the children who participated, thank you to the parents who support this special day, thank you to all the officials (parents and teachers), and an extra special thank you to Coach Michelle for all her hard work. It was truly a huge success.

Grade 8 Orientation Weekend 16-17 January 2015

On 16 January 2015, the Grade 8’s embarked on our Orientation Weekend under the leadership of the Grade 12s. Games started in the hall consisting of 'Pose like a….banana', 'Shoe/Squat', and 'Amazing Race'. We then went and swam and went on a slippery slide. We dried off and practised our house plays a bit. After a hamburger supper, it was pretty dark so the Grade 12’s taught us how to play k 'Stalk the Lantern'. What you have to do is find the lantern and capture it and take it to your starting point without being seen or caught. We were the stalkers first, the funniest part for me was when you hide and a matric comes and looks right at you but doesn’t see you. The Matrics then called us and said they will be the stalkers because we couldn’t get their lantern. We then got into position and watched. We held off the Matrics for quite a while but they got our lantern eventually. After being tired out, we went to fetch our bags and got ready for bed. The boys slept in the hall and the girls slept in the media centre. It was a rather peaceful night except for the Matric boys tickling our noses with tissues at around 2am. At 6am, we woke up and had to do exercises on the field. The Gr 8 Hoepoe team served Cornflakes for breakfast. Then the Matrics set up the obstacle course. It was a very eventful course including crawling through mud and having an egg cracked on your head, followed by a flour shower. Back to the slippery slide and into the pool took care of most of the muck. We had hot dogs for lunch and practised our play again. We played volley ball and then relaxed for a bit, preparing for the main event of the weekend. We had a bring and braai after which our parents were invited to join us in the hall, listen to a few speeches and to come watch the house play. After the play we all went up on stage and did our flag and our motto and a war cry dance. We went to the media centre to pack up and clean up. We then said goodbye to each other and left to go home one by one.

Matric Team Building Braai 10 January 2015

The first official school meeting of the year kicked off on Saturday, 10 January, where the Matrics came together to be informed of what their responsibilities would entail this year. Mr Kingma has a very strong conviction that every individual in Matric has a role to play in the spirit, discipline and continuation of traditions within the school. The morning was filled with motivational talks by Mr Kingma and Mr Edwards, the planning and operations of the upcoming Gr8 orientation camp, some teambuilding games (including ‘People Noughts and Crosses’ and ‘Which Famous Person am I’?), distributing of braiding for the Matric blazers as well as a delicious boerewors roll braai. They are an amazing group of Gr12’s and the management and staff have faith that they are going to play a hugely active role in taking Henley High and Prep School to a brand new level of greatness.
