FOREST Hills Drummie Club is a new drum majorette team made up of primary and high school girls from the Upper Highway area.Coaches Megan Roth and Maxine Bradshaw are proud of their senior captain, Ntokozo Shezi, who was awarded her KwaZulu-Natal majorette colours last year and was a member of the KZN provincial team who participated in the South African Majorette and Cheerleading Nationals in Germiston recently.Ntokozo’s passion, besides majorettes, is music and singing in her church choir. She also composes, raps and plays guitar and piano.This inspirational go-getter is currently in Grade 11 and wants to pursue a career in music once she has matriculated.Speaking about her goals, she said that her majorette goals for this year are to once again achieve her KZN majorette colours and attend the national selection camp at the end of the year to audition for her South African majorette colours. She also aims to be selected for the touring international team.Roth congratulated Ntokozo on her achievements and encouraged other girls to get involved with majorettes and assist the club.“As with any new sporting organisation, fund-raising is a substantial contributor to the success thereof. While the teams are considered to be well established in a growing squad with their routines, there are several challenges that necessitate financial support in order to get the team to a satisfactory level at competition. We therefore appeal to the community of the Upper Highway area for support.” She said the club will be hosting a fund-raising karoake evening at the Forest Hills Sports Club on 2 August and asked the community to support the event.“This will be a night of fun and entertainment. Entrance is R20 and food will be on sale and a cash bar will be available,” added Roth.Contact Roth on 082 802 1976 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or if you would like to be a sponsor.
