Welcome to Bergvliet High School
Vernon Wood passes away Print E-mail

Dear Bergvliet High family,

For the second time in recent weeks I am the bearer of sad news.  

Earlier today I was informed that our former principal, my immediate predecessor Vernon Wood, passed away after suffering a massive heart attack. He was out cycling with his wife, Betty-Ann, in preparation for the Argus Cycle tour.   

Vernon was deputy principal between 1997 and 2004 at Bergvliet before taking over from Mr Robertson as principal in 2005. He left Bergvliet High at the end of 2008 to become the principal of Bishops. A passionate educator, a leader who connected with his staff and a family man through and through, he is survived by his wife, Betty-Ann and three children, Belinda, Nicholas and Heather, all three past pupils of Bergvliet High.

On behalf of the SGB, staff, parents, past pupils and current learners, I extend our deep sadness and heartfelt condolences to Betty-Ann and the children. His passing is a tragic loss to education and I know it must be unimaginable to his family and friends.

God grant you all His Peace, Grace and Mercy at this devastating time.

Stephen Price

Last weekend, 47 Bergvliet High swimmers competed in the open water event at the Sanlam Cape Mile.  The swimmers competed in the various long and short distance challenges, returning with prize money to the value of R6000.  Ms Sian Gibbs who manages swimming at Bergvliet High School said, "Our swimmers swam their hearts out, with our top swimmer coming in, only 6 minutes behind the 4th time event winner Chad Ho. This is the second year that Bergvliet High School has taken part at this event and we look forward to competing in other open water events in the area”.  Photos courtesy of Tobias Ginsberg.
