PUPILS and staff at Thornhill Christian College celebrated the country’s heritage on Friday, September 22, by dressing up in traditional clothes. It was an eventful day which started with the arrival of pupils in cultural attire that was reflective of South Africa’s rich cultural diversity. Not to be out done were teachers who also dressed in accordance with the expectations of the day. Assembly was electrified by Mzwakhe Mbuli’s poetic music that triggered excitement among pupils. The Thornhill Christian College family met to ask the Almighty Lord to bless proceedings. Everything was done in unison and at the end of the morning devotion pupils went to their respective classrooms.There was a period of silence when pupils wrote end-of-term papers scheduled for the day. Upon completion of writing, pupils were instructed to proceed to the venue for the day’s commemorative heritage activities. When all were settled the organisers spelt out the programme for the day. All grades starting from RRR to 11 had performance items to present. These ranged from dance, song and poetry. Pupils’ God-given talent was visible and it calls upon teachers to tap and nurture such potential. A reasonable number of parents graced the occasion and it was good to see them watch what their children can do outside the classroom. The day was a hive of activity. Organisers of Friday’s event deserve a pat on the back. By reflecting on what happened this year, 2018 heritage celebrations can even be a bigger event. Thanks to all who made the day such a success. - Supplied.
