Please take note of the accompanying statement from our Headmaster, Mr W.E Pringle:

“After much deliberation, we would like to inform the school communities of both Union and Volkskool, that this year’s Interschools event, scheduled for the weekend of 6 and 7 August, has been called off.
This decision was by no means an easy one to make, as the event plays such an important role in our schools’ annual calendar, but unfortunately, Volkskool and Union have been left with no choice but to cancel the event.
We realise that this decision will be met with much disappointment as the annual Interschools encounter is so much more than the rivalry of sports teams on courts and fields. It has profound significance for all who have the schools’ interests at heart.
But, as educators, we respect the delicate situation that currently exists in our country and we adhere to the regulations that have been put in place by our Government and the Department of Basic Education, which has left us with no choice but to call Interschools 2021 off.
As always, ensuring the health and safety of our learners, guests, members of staff and the community is our top priority and under current government restrictions, we are unable to deliver this event to the same calibre and capacity that it is known for.
Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.
It is our most fervent wish that we will be together again in 2022 for this special occasion.”
MR. W.E. PRINGLE
