HAH Girls Visit The Valley of Desolation

On Sunday afternoon, 8 September, Mrs Lehesta Galloway took the Herby Arnott House girls to view the geological phenomenon that is the Valley of Desolation.

The Camdeboo National Park’s most popular sight, the Valley of Desolation – often called ‘The Cathedral of the Mountains’ – is a hauntingly beautiful valley with outstanding views featuring rugged, piled dolerite columns set against the backdrop of the endless Karoo plains.

From the nearby Toposcope viewpoint, which was also visited by the girls, Graaff-Reinet can be viewed in its entirety from above, nestled in a bend of the Sundays River.

Thank You!

Earlier today, Wednesday, 11 September, with South African National Parks Week in full swing, the ground staff and cleaning ladies of Union Pre-School, Union Preparatory School and Union High School were treated to a special picnic at the viewing deck at the parking area of the Valley of Desolation in the Camdeboo National Park to thank them for their hard work and contribution to the efficient running of the school.

In Memory of Jenni Wiggill

Jennifer Wiggill (6 December 1959 – 5 December 2018)

A bench dedicated to the memory of Jenni Wiggill (6 December 1959 – 5 December 2018) has recently been added to the Union High School campus.

The bench was donated to the Union Schools by the friends and family of Jenni Wiggill, as well as the Class of 1977.

The bench is situated in the shade of a tree, between the Union High School’s AstroTurf and the adjacent tennis courts.
