Heritage Day Celebration 2020

Heritage Month in September  and Heritage day on 24 September in particular is celebrated annually to mark our nation’s diverse culture and heritage. This year the theme was  “Celebrating South  Africa’s living human treasures.” . At the school we celebrated this year’s heritage day by doing a Jerusalema Dance challenge that has been keeping people busy globally. The President Cyril Ramaphosa also urged the country to take part in the dance challenge to reflect on the difficult journey we have all travelled, to remember those who lost their lives because of the Corona Virus and to quietly rejoice in the remarkable and diverse heritage our nation.

“The people’s relationship to their heritage is the same as the relationship of a child to its mother” John Clarke

 

 

Clean Water Tank Installation at Our School

Clean water is one of the few things in life that never fails to live up to expectations. It is difficult to overstate the importance of having it and it’s probably impossible. Clean water changes almost  everything. This is why access to and management of clean water is very important.  Sometimes we find ourselves struggling to get water as the community of Alicedale is facing serious issues with the shortage of water.

That is why the Sifunda kunye  water sanitation project  has helped us very much. They installed  more than 5 JOJO tanks at the school.

Words cannot express how grateful the school is to Sifunda kunye.

 

Sanitary Towel Donation

Nelson Mandela International Day is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, which when he was born. The Shamwari group decided to play their part by donating Sanitary towels to the girls of our school as part of celebrating the Madiba Month. On behalf of all the girls, the school would like to extend their gratitude to The Shamwari group for such an amazing gesture as we have been working very close with Shamwari for quite some time now. We all know the struggle of missing school every month because of not being able to afford sanitary towels. Thank you so much to the Shamwari group.
