LOCAL primary and high schools entered the South African Schools Choral Eisteddfod that was held at the Uvongo Town Hall over a number of days.

Some made it to the second level and will represent the district at provincial level.

Thobile Madodo from the Department of Education said the schools did well at local level and the department was pleased with the number of entrants.

Schools that entered at cluster level that was held in Pietermaritsburg also did well and some made it through to the next level.

“Sithembinkosi Primary and Ndunge Primary are the only primary schools that will be taking part provincially. Mcushwa High, Mtwalume and Makhanda High schools have been selected to compete at high-school level," she said.

The provincials will be held at The Playhouse Company in Durban from 25 to 28 May.
