WOMEN’S Day celebrations took a novel turn at Glenhaven Secondary when the male staff commenced the day with a treat for their female colleagues by serving them a sumptuous breakfast.

Thereafter a special programme to highlight Women’s Day was organised at the assembly.

Special guests honoured at the Women’s Day programme were well known community worker in the Verulam area Maggie Archary of the KZN Blind and Deaf Society and Charlene Chetty of the Verulam SAPS Crisis Centre.

The programme commenced with an insightful talk by Glenhaven pupil Sunaina Singh who highlighted the contributions made by women over the years and she made an impassioned plea for girls and women to focus on the beauty within themselves.

Eighty-year-old Maggie Archary highlighted the work her organisation has carried out for the Blind and Deaf in KZN.

Among others it included fundraising efforts, planning and organising outings for them and creating entertainment and other fun filled events for them to enjoy their days.

Charlene Chetty highlighted the need for pupils to take advantage of the education they were receiving and not to have regrets after they complete their schooling career.

She also expressed her desire to serve the community, especially abused women and children in community.
She offered her assistance and service to pupils and their parents who find themselves in difficult situations.

She left pupils with a profound message saying that whatever hardship and pain people experience in life only makes them stronger and more resilient. The programme was interspersed with a range of entertainment items which showcased the talent at Glenhaven Secondary.

Principal Philip Reddy thanked all sponsors for the day’s proceedings and also placed on record Glenhaven Secondary’s thanks and appreciation to the special guests for gracing the function with their presence. - Supplied
