PUPILS at Mount Ernestina Combined School participated in various activities recently.

Teachers continued to make healthy lifestyles fashionable as five teachers chose to participate in the FNB Durban 10 km race.

Teachers N.O. Dumakude, V.M. Zulu, S. Zulu, Q.E. Khanyile, and Z.C. Mbhele all ran a good race and encouraged other teachers to take part in running as a way of keeping themselves healthy.

The next race is the Save Orion 10 km event that will be held in Pieter­maritzburg on November 10. Ten teachers from the school will be participating in this event.

The foundation phase (Grade R to Grade 3) pupils embarked on their end of the year excursion to Durban recently. Their excursion started with a visit to the Pavilion Shopping Centre before proceeding to the SABC studios, Durban harbour and to the beach. Pupils were so happy to be in Durban.

Ten pupils from the school participated in an event organised by E-Campus in Greytown. Pupils participated in story telling, poetry and a beauty pageant.
