Bethlehem Voortrekker High School
Saturday, 03 September 2022
R50.00 - R80.00
Voortrekker High School is a time-honored school, in the picturesque Eastern Free State town of Bethlehem. Our origin was already in 1870, in the consistory of the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1902 the school was established as Bethlehem High School. The first note of our motto was made in 1916: "NON SIBI SED PATRIAE" (Not for myself but for my fatherland). A motto that learners still proudly convey today.
In 1928, the first photo of the school blazer is taken. Hence, the school prides itself, that it is the oldest design of school blazer in the country. The current name, BETHLEHEM VOORTREKKER HIGH SCHOOL, we finally got in 1938.
On September 3, 2022, we want to make this time-honoured heritage extra special, by putting on a new blazer and hosting an unforgettable Wildsfees, along with our 120th anniversary celebration. It is therefore our privilege to invite you.
Everyone can look forward to a day-long, full program. Come and enjoy a mountain bike race, tug of war, laser clay pigeon, Voortrekker MET and fun run, paintball, children's entertainment, serveral unique stalls with exhibitions, wine farms, tea garden and a beer tent. There are also numerous guest artists, such as Rooksein, Mia, Kate Rok, As you like it, Die Rowers, Rudo, Okkie, Salome and Droomsindroom, who, among others, will make the day unforgettable. A wide variety of game and other foods, "potjies", spit roasts and "braaivleis", as well as each year's stalwart and favourite, "roosterkoeke", will be on sale from 10:00, throughout the day and evening.
