It was a day of excitement when learners from different sections of Khayelitsha participated in an event marking the end of the spring school holiday last Friday.

The event, which was also attended by Alderman Belinda Walker, City of Cape Town’s mayoral committee member for community services and special projects, Councillor Mthwalo Mkhutswana, of Ward 97, other officials from sub-council 24 and residents, was held at Wetlands Park, in Makhaza.

The activities on the day included tree-planting, canoeing, soccer, netball, face-painting, a variety of awareness programmes, and other recreational activities.

Mkhutswana said the event was the continuation of Ward 97 Integration Street Sports tournament, which he organised and started last Monday, in Town Two.

City Vision reported about the tournament, last week.

“I am very happy that I managed to organise the successful tournament which benefited the children. They have shown a very big excitement,” he said.

Walker said that was a special day for the children.

“It is absolutely amazing to see children participating in such a fun event. This is a safe place for them to be and it is a very beautiful day for them. It will lift their spirit. It is a healthy activity for them as they get to run around and be active and it is also an educational event,” she said.

Lulamile Rorwana, manager of sub-council 24, said the event brought together children from different sections of the area together and that it was a good thing for them.

“I am happy for the event, because it is bringing the children together and that they are having fun,” he said.

Rorwana said the event was also supported by various other stakeholders such as Social Development, Solid Waste, City Park, City Libraries, Love Life and other organisations.

Ntando Yangaphi, 8, one of the children that attended the event, praised the event.

“I am very excited to be here. I am enjoying every moment. It is a good day for us, because we playing and we are not bored,” Yangaphi said
