New Media Centre opening 15th March 2013

The opening of the new Media Centre was a huge success; about 250 parents attended to show their support.

Everyone enjoyed a great variety show put on by our learners before the ribbon was cut and the doors officially opened.

There was a large selection of books on sale which many of the parents purchased and donated to the Media centre.

Many thanks go to Mrs Michelle Henderson (our Media Centre teacher) who coordinated the event, the teaching staff and learners - also to the Director/Owner of the school, Mr Eddie Edwards, Dr Jeann Dickinson (Head of School) and the Parent Forum for making all this possible.

February 2011 at HHPS

Athletics

There was loads of athletics action this month. Henley High hosted a friendly athletics meeting with Assemblies of God College on 10 February. This was a very good practice run for all athletes and Henley High walked away with the win.

On 16 February the Inter Private Schools event was held at Greenacres. It turned out to be an exceptionally competitive day and once again Henley High gained the victory.

Unfortunately the Cluster Schools athletics was rained out on Saturday 19 February, but this will be rearranged on another date.

The Junior school have also had a great athletics season. Our children took part at Meyerton Primary school and had a most enjoyable day. We went to DP De Villiers in Sasolburg for a cluster meeting and 12 children qualified to go to District championships. Daniele Barnes took first place in long jump and goes through to the regional championships. Raiden Pelzer came third in Long jump and also 5th place in 80m and 100m.

We are very proud of all our athletes and also all the learners who offered up their free time to support their team.

Swimming Gala

The highly anticipated and exciting Henley Prep Inter-House Gala took place at Bass Lake on 16 February. Being just a walk away, meant that the activities began long before the actual swimming. From the beginning, the gala was dominated by River, but Hoepoe refused to give up. In the end River did still steal the victory. Thank you to Mrs. Rosslee, Mrs. Hewer and Mrs. Baker for a well organized gala. Our thanks also goes to the parents for their help and support. Mrs. Firbank for timekeeping and Mrs. Dreyer with Mr. Da Silva who were our lifeguards.
