Kearsney headmaster Elwyn van den Aardweg said South Africans need to come together to support each other at this hour and adopt a spirit of social responsibility and civic-mindedness to support the national effort and minimise the impacts within the country.

At this stage it's unclear whether the various other Easter Festivals held annually around the country will proceed, or suffer the same fate.
