“Approximately 55 primary and high schools are expected to participate and there will be 12 categories consisting of more than 50 sub-sessions. There will be magnificent prizes with the compliments of our dedicated sponsors,” said Korkie.

The sub-sessions of participation include instrumental music, bands, dance, singing, choirs, speech and drama, creative writing, karate, provincial choir competition, provincial singing competition, arts and crafts including themed categories, photography and many more.

This year also includes live marimba/djembe performances from Mozambique including professional workshops.
