Dear Past Pupils and Teachers


HERMANUS HIGH SCHOOL 75-YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Hermanus High School became an official high school in 1941, with its first matric class in 1942. The school will therefore be celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2016. The school is planning a number of events as well as a great festive weekend and reunion of past pupils around the Inter-Schools Sports Fixture over 19 - 21 August. We hope to have as many past pupils, teachers and parents as possible attending these functions and trust that you will be able to make the necessary arrangements to join us. The weekend will also be the perfect opportunity for ALL year groups to arrange reunions. It is a weekend that promises to be a fun, memorable and historical event. We are expecting a huge gathering!


The full programme for the celebrations, including the functions around the Inter-Schools weekend, can be found below. You are welcome and encouraged to attend any of the activities that will be taking place. The functions taking place over the Inter-Schools weekend will need planning for the catering and RSVP’s will therefore be required.


To commemorate this 75-Year Anniversary a number of memorabilia as well as an anniversary book commemorating the school’s 75-year history will be produced. We trust that there will be something suitable for everyone. These items will be available to purchase from the school during the year, over the Festival Weekend or you will be able to order them in advance (see attached list).


Photos and prices of the memorabilia will be available on the school’s website (www.hermanushigh.co.za) as well as the facebook page (Hoërskool Hermanus 75-jaar Reünie). Examples will be on display in the school’s foyer. Please visit the facebook page where we post photos of years gone by.

Geagte  Oudleerders en -onderwysers


HOëRSKOOL HERMANUS 75-JAAR-HERDENKING

Die Hoërskool Hermanus het in 1941 amptelik ‘n hoërskool geword en die eerste matriekklas het in 1942 gematrikuleer. Die skool sal dus in 2016 vyf en sewentig jaar oud wees. Ons beplan ‘n aantal geleenthede asook ‘n feesnaweek en reünie van oudleerders wat alles met die Interskole-byeenkoms op 19-21 Augustus sal saamval. Ons hoop om soveel as moontlik oudleerders by hierdie laasgenoemde funksies byeen te bring en vertrou dat u die nodige reëlings vroegtydig sal maak om dit by te woon. Die naweek sal ook ‘n goeie geleentheid vir ALLE jaargroepe wees om reünies te reël. Dit gaan ‘n aangename, gedenkwaardige en geskiedkundige gebeurtenis wees. Ons verwag ‘n groot opkoms!


Die volledige program insluitend die funksies rondom die Interskolenaweek is hieronder. U is welkom om enige van die aktiwiteite by te woon. Aangesien die funksies van die naweek met spyseniering gepaard gaan, sal RSVP’s verlang word.


Om die geleentheid te herdenk, word ‘n aantal aandenkings, asook ‘n boek oor die skool se geskiedenis beplan. Ons glo daar sal iets vir almal wees. Hierdie items sal gedurende die jaar beskikbaar wees, asook tydens die Feesnaweek. U sal dit vooraf kan bestel (sien aangehegte lys). Voorbeelde kan in ons voorportaal gesien word. Foto’s en pryse van die memorabilia sal op die skool se webblad (www.hermanushigh.co.za) asook ons Facebook-bladsy (Hoërskool Hermanus 75-jaar Reünie) beskikbaar wees. Gaan gerus op ons Facebook-bladsy en bekyk die foto’s van vergange jare.
