PUPILS of Harry Bodasing Primary School last week acknowledged and thanked the youth of 1976 for their bravery in fighting the apartheid government.

Pupils were enlightened on the true significance of June 16. They commemorated the role the youth played in the Soweto protests of 1976, many of whom were shot by the apartheid police while protesting against the sub-standard education in black schools in South Africa.
Teacher Shane Hanuman showed them a picture of the protest, and the famous picture of 13-year-old Hector Pieterson.
“I also spoke to them about their method of protest being a peaceful one compared to the youth of today.”
Pupils danced and sang the song “Freedom is coming tomorrow”.
They then did a candle and shouted in the crowd “Mayibuye, iAfrika, iAfrika Mayibuye”. Finally, the entire school closed the programme with the national anthem.
