See our events calendar for the latest update about everything that is happening! Some of our special events that should definitely NOT be missed include:
This event is our main annual fundraising event. It is a highlight on the social calendar and learners meticulously prepare for it. Teams are made up, costumes are designed and creative team names are at the order of the day. The Bowl-A-Thon is hosted by the Emerald Casino and Resort and an entire school day is set aside for this purpose. See our gallery for all the fun pics of previous years!
Each year Vaalpark Articon brings a spectacular production to the stage where we showcase the best of the best. Our top performers in each of the Art disciplines are cast in a special program which attracts the who’s who of the local region. Tickets usually sell like hot cakes and if you wish to attend, be sure to look out for event dates and times to avoid disappointment.
Our Valentines Ball is yet another highlight on the social calendar and is eagerly attended by both juniors and seniors.
Practical Assessment Evenings:
Due to the practical nature of our Art subject disciplines, our learners have “PATs” (Practical Assessment Tasks) which are quite entertaining and spectacular to experience. During these events, learners are assessed and awarded marks for their practical work. Parents, guardians, family and friends are encouraged to attend these evenings in order to boost and support learners.
Vaalpark Articon has annual open days which are mainly aimed at new Grade 8 learners, but all other interested potential learners are welcome to attend. During such a day you will have the opportunity to see and experience all that Vaalpark Articon has to offer. Look at our gallery to see what we offer!
At Vaalpark Articon, we love camping! We have the following camps during the course of the year. For more details, contact the school.
