From the desk of Mrs Paulette Moonsamy – Head of Grade 4 and Event Co-ordinator


We celebrated the cultural wealth of our school and nation during the month of September.

Class teachers screened presentations on: what makes our country special; well-known South African inventions; and symbols we are proud of as a nation. Students busied themselves with colour-in activities and completed citizen of South Africa passport templates, with pride and patriotism.

On Friday, 23 September the Grade 4 students and Grade 7 Culture Committee addressed the school asssembly. Dressed in their cultural finery, the group highlighted the significance of the public holiday and delivered a tutorial to the student body on how to greet in the eleven official languages.

Monday, 26 September was a day of vibrant colour, high energy and cultural pride as our students and teachers donned attire that reflected their proud heritage. The school day began with the singing of the national anthem. This set the tone for the rest of the day as we recognised our diversity in the wider context of a nation that belongs to all. During break the students enjoyed their lunches to the sound of South African music.

I am certain our student body is richer in knowledge, experience and appreciation, for having had the opportunity to commemorate and celebrate Heritage Focus Month.
