Henley High and Preparatory School: Term 1 - 2015 Highlights


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.

Berry Farm


2015 has been a fruitful year for the HHPS chess team. Eleven of our players qualified for the Sedibeng team and two of these, Vangile Nhlapo and David Smith, entered the individuals at the SA’s. Both made it into the SA Top 20, only missing the SA team by a few points.



The 5 members of the HHPS Horse Riding Team Erin Price, Megan de Lange, Mackenzie Poulter, Tanna Frankisch, and Joshua Neve all participated in the SANESA 3rd qualifiers. They all did extremely well and have made it through to the next round with the goal being to achieve a place in the Sedibeng team. Seen here are Tanna Frankisch and Joshua Neve.

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!

Easter Madness Easter Madness


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.

Animal Farm


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.

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.

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


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.
