An initiative to recognise, celebrate and share cultures and heritage saw more than 100 high school learners come together at the Wolfgat Nature Reserve Environmental Multi-purpose Centre in Tafelsig on Tuesday.

The annual Heritage School event is hosted by various departments, including the City of Cape Town, the Department of Cultural Affairs and The Cape Flats Tourism and Environmental Development Association. Around 120 learners from Cedar High School in Rocklands and Chris Hani High School in Khayelitsha were invited to attend the event.

“We selected these two schools because they are art and drama schools,” says Selwyn Kondowe, manager of the Cape Flats Tourism and Environmental Development Association.

The schools each put on a show about their cultures and celebrating their heritage­.

This was followed by talks and exhibitions from local Muslim, Rastafari and Khoisan leaders.

Elamilima Environmental Project, Mothers 2 Mothers, Cape Town Environmental Education Trust were also partners in the event.
