By means of quality tuition and education par excellence we will build a future for our youth. 


Kwaliteitonderrig en opvoeding by uitnemendheid, bou vir ons jeug ‘n toekoms.



Op die oewer van die Vaal aan Vrystaatkant,
pryk Vaalparkskool in die hart van ons land.
Soos uit eie bodem die Soetdoring bloei,
wil ons ook deur werk en spel vestig en groei.
Nederig ons strewe na eenvoud en krag.
Dank aan ons Skepper vir wat ons vermag.

We praise, praise praise,
We praise you Alma Mater,
You, you, you, you make us all so strong,
We'll strive, strive, strive
We'll strive to do the good
And avoid, avoid the wrong.

GEEN SELFONE/SELFOONHORLOSIES word by die skool toegelaat nie.  Indien ‘n leerling ‘n selfoon / selfoonhorlosie skooltoe bring, moet hy/sy dit by die kantoor inteken, tot aan die einde van die dag.

Om u kind se veiligheid tydens skoolure te verseker, is ons genoodsaak om die volgende in plek te stel:-

Indien u die skool besoek, moet u eerstens by die sekretaresse, me. Thysse, aanmeld. Sy sal u kind oor die interkom roep, indien nodig, of ‘n afspraak met die onderwyser maak, op ‘n geleë tyd. Andersins sal me. Baker u te woord staan.

Indien u die skoolterrein om ‘n ander rede wil betree, sal me. Thysse vir u ‘n besoekerskaartjie gee.

Wanneer u die terrein verlaat, moet u die besoekerskaart terughandig.



Our learners’ safety is of utmost importance to us, therefore we request that you help us with the traffic flow in Tafelberg Crescent.

We cannot change the traffic rules, but we would appreciate it if you would all come in with the road , at the AGS church, and exit at JCS.

If everybody co-operates it will definitely contribute to the smooth flow of traffic in the mornings and afternoons.  We thank you for assisting us to ensure the safety of everyone.
