During this lockdown and extended period of school closure, Hermanus High School has opted to implement Distance Learning. This has required supplying all our pupils with the necessary resources and assistance to continue with the school’s educational programme, despite the fact that the pupils are at home.
One of the obstacles experienced in the roll-out of the distance learning programme is the lack of access to WiFi and data for a number of the school’s pupils.
Our matric pupils have come up with the slogan #wewontstay, which has been embraced for all our grades. All the school’s pupils are extremely motivated to continue with their schoolwork so as to ensure that they complete the academic school year. Starting with our matric group, the school made every effort to ensure that every pupil in the school has data to access the distance learning programme.
Through the very kind and generous support of several local businesses, the school is now able to supply all their pupils with data – Newton Johnson Wines, Walker Bay Pest Control and Overberg Wealth & Risk Management (Grade 8), Events One and Rotary Hermanus (Grade 9), Mack’s Petroleum (Grade 10), FinGlobal (Grade 11) and Value Chain Solutions (Grade 12).
Hermanus High School would like to thank the directors and owners of these companies. Thanks to them, all the pupils of Hermanus High School have been afforded the opportunity to continue receiving an education during this time of school closure. The value of their contribution to, and continued support of the school will never be able to be measured.
Hermanus High School is and remains a community school. Thank you for being part of our journey.
