LEARNERS of the Isago Primary School were once again granted the opportunity to showcase their talent during the school’s Mr and Miss Isago Primary School beauty pageant over the weekend.

The event, held at the RC Elliot Hall, emerged as an eye-opener for gr. 6 learner Katlego Senye (12), who was crowned Mr Isago Primary.

He is strongly considering giving modelling a try after being forced to quit athletics due to his poor heart condition.

The proud first time winner said he never participated in a beauty pageant before.

Katlego said he was happy that the school gave him the opportunity to test his capabilities.

According to one of the teachers and organisers of the pa-geant, Mantele Mokgoro, the beauty pageant was held over two days in order to separate the foundation phase and the intermediate phase learners.

The foundation phase pageant was held on Friday (16/09).

The pageant for the intermediate phase was held on Saturday (17/09).

“This way they all had an equal opportunity to showcase their talent and to receive special treatment.

They were competing against their own peers,” Mokgoro explained.

Joy Molatlhwe (11), who was crowned as Miss Isago, sang a different tune regarding modelling as a career.

Joy revealed that she was just taking part in the pageant for fun.

She said she wants to focus fully on her studies and pursue a medical career.

She further wished all the models who competed against her on the day, good luck in pursuing a career in modelling.

The beauty pageant ended in a tearful mode for some of the participants who felt they deserved to have won.

However, the beauty event brought satisfactory results.

This results were due to parents and teachers who pulled all stops to make it a success and an event for the learners to remember.

Mokgoro, who was also the programme director, however, pointed out that participation by parents could still be improved.

According to her, the event was a fundraising initiative whereby they wanted to fill up the school’s coffers.

She added that those learners who were disappointed because they had not been successful in the pageant, should in future receive counselling before such events take place.

“That was also due to the fact that they were made to feel special by the cheering and support from the audience on the floor while they were on stage.

“An active audience is a good thing.

“We appreciate that from the parents.

“But we know that kids were being kids in this regard.”

The event further saw one of the male contestant being awarded a token of appreciation because there were only four males on the day.

One of the teachers, Clifford Louw, who was the doorkeeper, also expressed his satisfaction with the two day event.

Louw thanked the parents for supporting the school’s extra curricular activities.
