As part of the 60th celebrations Bergvliet High School commissioned past pupil and current parent Gina Florentino to create the school badge using mosaic. Gina set about the project with much enthusiasm eager to participate in a project for her Alma Mater. Gina encouraged parents and learners to participate, with the final piece being a wonderful tribute to the long hours and dedication by those who contributed in the making of this amazing display.
Bergvliet High is saddened to announce the unexpected passing of former Principal, Mr Anthony John Hibberd (Tony) Smith. Mr Smith passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon at home. Mr Smith was principal of Bergvliet High School from 1971 till 1993 when he retired. The School acknowledges his influential role in guiding the school through what history has shown to be very tumultuous years in South African Education. Mr Smith started at Bergvliet High in 1968 as Vice- Principal and in late 1970 he was appointed as Acting Principal when the Principal at the time, Mr CP Fourie, took ill. Mr Smith officially became Principal in 1972. The funeral service will be held on Friday 10 March 2017 at 3pm at Christchurch Constantia.
