NEWHOLME Primary School held a farewell and heritage event on Friday, October 4.The school organised a farewell function for long serving employee Dingeni Dladla, who’s well-known at the school as Aunty Ann. According to teacher Naresh Singh, Dladla had been a general cleaner at the school for over 10 years. Dladla took on the role of “gogo” at the school because her love and kind heart was like the glue that held the school together.“Aunty Ann gave over 10 years of her life to Newholme Primary school because it was her passion. It was the love for what she did that gave her the strength to continue serving the school and its community,” said Singh.Singh said because they did not host a Heritage Day event and because of a lack of time, they had to incorporate the farewell with a heritage function.As part of the event, there were various cultural performances by Grade 7 pupils.“The day ended with a cake-cutting ceremony. The cake was sponsored by Mimmies Bakery. Pupils and teachers also received a plate of breyani which was cooked and served by Dino, Paras, and Shamol Prabhu who are representatives of the Food For Life International,” said Singh.He added that the principal, staff, School Governing Body and pupils are appreciative of everyone who made this event possible.
