Welcome back after the holiday. I hope everybody has settled in. The term will

be a challenging one, so may every learner make it his or her duty to work as hard as possible.


The test cycle has started on 30 July 2013 and the schedule is in the homework books. Plan properly and everything will be so much easier.


We are looking forward to the sport and culture activities we have this term and wish the participating teams all the luck. Remember, the harder you train the more luck you will have.


I would like to thank the parents for their co-operation especially those who attended the parents’ morning. The parents who could not attend the parents’ morning must ensure that they collect the report cards from the school during office hours. We appreciate the school fees we are receiving but would like to call on those who have not paid recently, to please contribute.


Good luck to the Grade 12 learners who are currently writing their tests. Their Prelim exam will start on 21 August 2013.




Karel Mokalake Lesejane

Karel Mokalake Lesejane

Born: 18 March 1992

Passed Away: 19 May 2011


It is with great sadness that we as a school say goodbye to one of our fellow students, Karel Lesejane.

Karel passed away unexpectedly on Thursday afternoon.


He joined Vorentoe in 2009 and went on to become one of our top athletes.

Not only was he the team captain but represented Vorentoe at the2010 Inter High Competition.

He was also a member of the athletics team that won the Director’s trophy in 2010.


If we could have a lifetime wish

A dream that could come true,

We’d pray to God with all our hearts

For yesterday and You.

A thousand words can’t bring you back

We know because we’ve tried…


Neither will a thousand tears

We know because we’ve cried…

You left behind our broken hearts

And happy memories too…

But we never wanted memories

We only wanted You.
