VALUES

Emphasis is placed on 6 core values and characteristics of a true ‘Vorie’: Reliability, Justice, Respect, Care, Responsibility and Citizenship.

PTA

The Parent Teachers Association consists of dynamic parents who propose, arrange and manage the school’s fundraising projects. Projects co-ordinated by the PTA rely greatly on the help, ideas and contributions of our parents. The class representatives are the links between the PTA and the parents. Involvement in any of the PTA – arranged projects, is an opportunity for every parent to be a part of the Vorentoe Primary School family. The funds that are raised throughout the year are directly invested in improving the teaching experience of our learners.

Mothers Who Care

MWC consist of small groups of Christian mothers whose primary purpose is prayer. They also provide moral support for children and teachers. Vorentoe Primary School’s MWC group pray weekly for learners, staff and parents. The focus is on ensuring the spiritual well-being of the learners. Various activities, camps and Bible studies with the children are also offered.

Kossak

This year our school started a project to help and bless families within our school and in our local community with basic necessities like food and clothing. A competition was launched amongst the learners to come up with a name for the project. Hanley Nel, a Grade 3 learner, came up with the suggestion and we immediately liked it.

Non-perishable foods and clothing were collected throughout the year by way of little competitions and fundraisers. In this way we were able to regularly drop off bags full of blessings to families in need.

Kossak teaches us that even a small donation, like a can of food, can make a big difference in someone else’s life. Kossak has many new plans for next year. With a team like Vorentoe Primary Schools parents and learners as well as the help of the Great Brak River community, we know that together we will be able to bring much blessing and hope to those closest to us.

Brolloks Burger

Vorentoe Primary School’s own newspaper is published twice a year.

The editors, consisting of learners, work under the guidance of a parent and teacher. The learners are equipped and trained in computer skills and creative writing. The colourful newspaper is packed with interesting articles and holiday activities. Local businesses and service providers also get the opportunity to advertise in this publication.
