The writer of our school anthem, Mr. Carl van Wyk, was inspired by the countless bright stars and came to the conclusion that human accomplishments are unlimited.
"We can do anything, only the impossible takes a little bit longer."
Wyd soos ons ruimtes van vlaktes en rug
Ryk soos ons aarde en skoon soos ons lug
So leef ons en streef ons ons sonnige dag
Aan die Hoërskool Vryburg met jeugdige krag.
Ons werk en ons woeker met liggaam en gees
Om 'n sieraad vir God en die wêreld te wees
Om te leer en te lewe met al ons mag
Carpe Diem vir ons is die dag.
Here where the grass meets the endless blue sky
Sun shining brightly as seasons fly by
We live and we learn with passionate soul
At the High School Vryburg we accomplish our goals.
We work and we play with a pride for our school
To bring glory to God who is all powerful
So we trust and we pray that we find our way
Carpe Diem we live for the day.
Music composed by G.A. de Ronde, born 1904. Afrikaans lyrics written by Carel van Wyk and the English lyrics were added in 2017 (written by Nalize Cillers, born 1993).
