School celebrate heritage day


Makantane primary school celebrated their rich diversity and culture at school during heritage day. In the past few weeks ago, the school made means by holding a successful talent show to raise funds to the heritage day.

The learners had the chance to dress in cultural outfits, tell their classmates something about their heritage and taste traditional foods.

Educators explained the purpose of celebrating the day: “was to educate the learners about the day and its meaning,” To add to the celebrations, the children took a part in a dance show to demonstrate the various cultural dance shows demonstrate the various cultures.

“As a school, we decided that it would be a great learning experience if all our learners from grade R to seven, dressed up for this heritage. Through this, we were able to promote a culture where our children can know a bit more about who they are and where they come from,” says grade four class teacher who preferred to be called Shila.

“We want our children to be proud of their heritage and who they are, because, at times, we find that some of them tend to be shy about their culture, due to the way they treated by other children or adults in their community,” said Shila.

Some of the staff ended the celebration by addressing the learners on the significant of the day and why, as young people, they should be proud of their traditions.

Later in the day the school was entertained with a variety of cultural dance, poetry and prayer. A wonderful day was enjoyed learning more about rich heritage of South Africa
