Chris Hani Secondary School outshined all other schools participating in the Western Cape School’s Choral Eeisteddfod competition, at the False Bay College, Khayelitsha, over the weekend.

The school, which is under Metropole East District, scooped five position ones in all the categories that they vied for.

They competed with the best schools in their districts around the province.

They had entered for Indigenous Folklore, an Afrikaans song, Soprano Soloist, Tenor Soloist and an African song.

They had already assumed the top spot prior to the competition.

Madoda Mahlutshana, the school principal said they were on cloud nine.

“It is a good story for the school and it shows how passionate about music we are. These are the results of hard work that the team put in.

They started practising hard from early in January,” Mahlutshana said.

The school is now preparing for the national competition which will be held in Gauteng province later in the year.

The school’s victories are a far cry from when the first entered the competition in 2013 and came back worst losers.

“We did not do well there, but we came back hungry for success,” Mahlutshana noted.

Nkosiyethu Zuma, said the sacrifices they made paid off for them.

“I cannot explain how much I am excited. I feel that the hard work that we put in the practise helped us to win. I was crying before they announced the results because I was thinking of all the sacrifices that we have made leading to the competition. There is nothing that will stop us from winning in the national competition. We will do our best to win,” Zuma said.

Asemahle Gomba, the soloist, said she was “extremely happy” for causing a storm in the competition. She said she started singing in her primary school and that she is taking music as a hobby. “I believe music will take me places in future. I want to show them in Gauteng what Western Cape is made of.”
