Last Friday we had Cultural Day. All the schools from sports day competed against each other in dance, drama, art and poetry. It was a lot like the first round of the Urdd Eisteddfod, and here the winners go through to a regional competition, then a national one too.
There were four different dance competitions, though our school entered just one, the mokhibo. This is a dance done by girls to music composed and sung by their classmates. You can see the costumes they wear in the pictures. The other dances were the litolobonya (also performed by girls) ndlamo and mohobelo (performed by boys).
We also entered the drama and art competitions with our children doing really well. We won a competition too! Joalane recited her poem ‘Soccer World Cup on African Soil’ accompanied by two of her classmates on vuvuzelas. She impressed the judges so much that she goes through to the regional competition in August. Everyone at school is very pleased for her.
