Sports

At Voortrekker we regard the sports programme as an extremely important and integral part of the holistic education of our pupils. We are proud to be competing against the top schools in KZN and giving our boys and girls the best possible opportunities.

We have a comprehensive sport programme that caters the following sporting codes:

Krieket / Cricket: Hierdie jaar het ons 4 spanne op die veld en speel ons teen die top 10 seunsskole in KZN. Ons 1ste span krieketafrigter is Mr Quintie Naudé, wat huidiglik die KZN Binnelandse Provinsiale o/17 afrigter is.

Rugby: Voortrekker het ‘n baie ryk rugby geskiedenis en alhoewel ons net 10 spanne het (o/14 tot opes) kompeteer ons met trots teen die T1 skole. Ons voormalige rugbykaptein en hoofseun, Bandisa Ndlovu, verteenwoordig tans die Sharks o/21.

Hokkie / Hockey: Voortrekker bied veld hokkie aan vir beide seuns en dogters. Vanjaar het ons 8 spanne. Our girls’ compete in the schools’ A league and are often up against the strongest teams in KZN.
We also offer indoor hockey to girls that takes place during the 3rd term.
We often produce quality players that represent Voortrekker on district, provincial and national level.

    

Hokkie kan nie gespeel word sonder skeidsregters nie. Ons kan met trots noem dat Me Melissa Taylor (‘n nasionsale skeidsregter) vanjaar ons skeidsregterspannetjie gaan versterk.

We have very promising provincial and national umpires in the making. Mev Anna-Marié Snyman wat huidiglik ‘n KZN afrigter is, is die sporthoof van hokkie en rig ook ons dogters se 1ste span af.

Netbal / Netball: Ons het die seisoen afgeskop met 4 nuwe afrigters, onder andere Me Brenda Naudé, ‘n provinsiale speelster, wat saam met Me Elri Geldenhuys die eerste en tweede spanne afrig.

We are currently busy with skills training.  Girls do elevation exercises as well as upper body strengthening exercises.  Mr James Nothling also takes the senior squad for fitness training in the swimming pool.  We will be focusing on ball skills later during the first term.

Our league matches will start in the second term and we will be ready for some strong opposition. 

Swem / Swimming: Voortrekker High School has a proud swimming tradition and is currently undefeated in its various gala’s. Over the years VHS swimming has consistently had swimmers in the district and provincial school teams, with a number of them participating at national club and school championships and ranking in the top 20 in their respective age groups in the country. Away from the pool, our swimmers form a forceful trio with other VHS learners for the Mudman events. In the pool and out, VHS swimming epitomizes the school motto of “Aanhou Wen!”

Mudman: Ons Vories Mudman span wat goed bekend is as die “Blou Masjien”, werf gereeld die titel as die wenskool by die aQuelle Mudman reeks.

  • Tennis
