BETHEL Junior School from a deep rural area in Matatiele defeated other schools during the Department of Education Alfred Nzo West sub-district school choir competition in Maluti recently.

Pupils from the foundation phase sang Bana Ke Bokamoso and The Ash Grove and obtained first position.

The school’s junior choir sang two songs, Our Father in Heaven and Siyikusasa le Afrika, and also got first position. The intermediate boys’ choir got second position after singingWhat a Wonderful World.

Schools that formed part of the competition came from Mount Frere, Ntabankulu, Mount Ayliff, Maluti and Matatiele.

“Our school choir performed well at the competition,” said Bethel Junior principal Michael Nketle. He encouraged other schools to expose pupils to music and other extra-curriculum activities.
