Local primary schools have put their areas on the map after scooping several trophies during a school competition.

iLitha Primary School in Gugulethu walked away with two trophies during an ABC Motsepe School Eisteddfod 2018 held at Langa High School a fortnight ago.

The school came first in both English and Xhosa intermediate category in the Central District.

Conductor Nomathamsanqa Malawana dedicated their success to hard work.

“We worked very hard preparing for the competition. We were practicing after school and on Saturdays. We were well prepared,” said Malawana.

She said their next hurdle to overcome was the provincial competition in September.

School Principal Sedick Du Toit described music as part of the community.

“It was a team effort between staff members and learners. And this is an opportunity for the learners to demonstrate how good they are on a bigger stage to put the school on the map,” said Du Toit.

Imbasa Primary School also came back with four trophies in the same competition held at Sinethemba High School in Philippi last Friday.

They came second in the Infants phase in seSotho, the Foundation phase came third on both English and Zulu and in the intermediate, they came first in Afrikaans.

Choir conductor Mapula Motana thanked the school and parents for their support.

“I want to give credit to our learners who showed dedication and making the school proud. We are looking forward to the provincial competition,” said Motana.

School Principal Vuyelwa Ndunduzela said her school has a good record in music. “The music is in our blood. Each and every year we win, last year we came with three trophies in the same category,” she bragged.
