Die nasionale ATKV-olimpiade uitslae is ontvang. Parel Vallei se juniors het uitstekend gevaar in dié Nasionale Afrikaans-olimpiade waaraan hulle op 4 September 2018 deelgeneem het.

Die Parel Valleiers op die foto stap weg met die titel Beste Juniors in die Wes-Kaap in Afrikaans Huistaal EN Afrikaans Eerste Addisionele Taal! In die Huistaal-afdeling is Lienke Norval en Mari Diedericks die wenners en die Afrikaans Eerste Addisionele Taal-afdeling is gewen deur Nerise Malan.

Vier PV-leerders het ook posisies in die nasionale Top 100 verwerf. Hulle is: Adriana van der Spuy, Marietjie Cilliers en Sherize Liebenberg (in Afrikaans Huistaal) en Charl Marais (in Afrikaans Eerste Addisionele Taal).

Die WKOD (Wes-Kaapse Onderwysdepartement) het PV ook gister in kennis gestel dat hul graad 12-leerders in die NSS (Nasionale Senior Sertifikaat)-eksamen van 2018 die 9de plek in Afrikaans Huistaal en die 12de plek in Afrikaans Eerste Addisionele Taal behaal het.  Die prestasies benadruk net weer die waarde van dié bogenoemde olimpiade vir PV se junior-leerders.

Baie geluk aan al PV se Afrikaans-onderwysers wat Afrikaans so lewendig en prettig hou vir die leerders.

15-Jan-2019 | Inter-House Athletics’ Results 2019

The athletic season started with a bang on the second and third day of this term, when ALL Parel Valleiers gave their best and participated in true Blue Thread spirit to earn points for their individual sports houses: Stella, Aberdeen and Nassau.  Nine new records were set and the day even saw staff and old PV learners participating in a race or two!

Congratulations to NASSAU who were the overall winners of the ATHLETICS’ TROPHY. (Nassau won with 2 325 points; Stella in second place with 2 214 points and Aberdeen third, with 2 183 points.)  

It was a hairbreadth escape for ABERDEEN, that managed to defend the SPIRIT CUP with 309 points against the runner up, Nassau, with 305 points! It was Aberdeen’s passion and commitment throughout the day that really sealed the title for them.  Stella came third, earning 284 points.

 Thank you to Mrs Kets, Mr Nic Soekoe and the athletics team for organising this great event each year and for giving Parel Valleiers the opportunity to realise their full potential.

11-Jan-2019 | Wes-Kaap Nasionale Senior Sertifikaat-seremonie

BAIE GELUK aan PV se Dux-leerder, Renée van Zyl, wat op 10 Januarie tydens die NSS-seremonie te Leeuwenhof ‘n merietesertifikaat ontvang het vir Akademiese Uitnemendheid.

Renée het 7 vakonderskeidings behaal, en ‘n gemiddeld van 95.5%.

Sy is werklik ‘n voorbeeld van ‘n hardwerkende en passievolle leerder wat haar drome voluit nastreef.

PV se onderwysers en Beheerliggaam wens haar alle voorspoed toe vir die toekoms!

(Op die foto’s is Renée saam met haar ouers (mev Marlene en mnr Attie van Zyl) en die skoolhoof, mnr David Schenck.)

In 1997 we had a very important strategic session during which the staff, management and Governing Body plotted the future of our school.

After very meaningful discussions and deliberation, we came to the conclusion that we were entering a time of huge change. We were on the threshold of introducing OBE (Outcome Based Education) and realised that the one constant going into the future would be change!

We were very proud of our academic excellence and were working hard at bringing sport and culture up to the same level as the academics. Around the table we penned our Vision for the future: "EXCELLENCE IN A CHANGING WORLD"

Since those very important discussions we are very proud to be able to say that we really do achieve excellence in our ever changing environment.

Some 10 years ago my wife and I attended a stage production of the musical ‘Evita’ which depicted the life of Evita Peron, wife of the Past President of Argentina.
During the show, Evita says, in a very defiant moment: "I’m proud to be and Argentinian."

At school at the time, I was thinking about ways in which I could spark off some pride in the school. Although many of our pupils had tremendous talent, they were often lacking in confidence and were almost scared to show pride in themselves or their school. I took Evita’s words and entered our own name and got: "Proud to be a Parel Valleier". I motivated and encouraged pupils to buy into the concept of having pride in themselves and in what they do but without being arrogant.

We also started to use this slogan on the foot of all our outgoing mail and on our letterheads. Interestingly, some of the grade 8’s, when they answer the question in their little test about the motto of the school, say that, “Proud to be a Parel Valleier” is the school’s motto instead of the real motto "Sapientia et intellegentia."

Long may this slogan live in the hearts and minds of our learners and may they always be "Proud to be a Parel Valleier".
