Learners from HJ Kroneberg Primary School in Kensington used art to display their knowledge of nature during their annual school concert themed “Elements of earth”.The concert was held at Kensington Civic Centre on Wednesday evening. Hundreds of learners participated and entertained the audience. They performed different genres, representing all elements of earth and raising awareness to take care of them. The school secretary, Samantha Williams, says this year they decided to on the theme because of the ongoing drought.She says the school saw it fit that the children are taught about these circumstances and encouraged to share their knowledge with the rest of the community. “The majority of the audience is the parents and community members from Kensington. Through this concert we want to remind them about the importance of playing their role in saving the nature. This is also an opportunity for the children to showcase their skills as we have allowed them to pick any genre they wanted to perform as a class and guided them through as they developed it to a stage performance. “They are amazing. You can see they love what they do and they understand the meaning.” She says the concert was also aimed at raising funds for the school, which would be used for school maintenance.Performances varied from different dance style to drama and singing done by learners from Grade 1 to Grade 7.Aqeelah Davids (12), says she is happy to participate in the concert as she got the opportunity of being on stage. She says she felt like a superstar during the performance. Another learner, Liema Nyangule (13) says the concert teaches them about teamwork and creativity. “I am hoping to learn more about communicating with my classmates and creativity. It took us a month to prepare for this concert and I like how the whole team has come together. We are doing element fire and we will be dancing and representing fire as a team,” she says.Parent Karima Solomon says she always support the concert every year and it is important for them as parents to be part of it as the school is about partnership between the stakeholders. She says she likes the idea of a concert because it teaches the learners about discipline, team building and confidence.As part of fundraising the school sold snacks, and charged an entry fee of R40 per person.
