MALUSI OMUHLE 2013 GRADE SEVEN PARTY WITH MR. NASCH (SCHOOL SPONSOR)
November 16 was a wonderful day, partly cloudy but good for pap and braai. It was filled with joy and excitement, as the out-going Grade Seven were treated to a braai party by Mr. Nasch and his daughter. They had come to see the progress in the school and to give this farewell party.
The day started with a candle-lighting ceremony in the cathedral, with a few words of encouragement and a blessing by Bishop Jose Luis Ponce de Leon. He told the learners the story of the blind man who asked Jesus that he may see, and that they should imitate the blind man when they are unable to see their way. He asked them to be our good ambassadors to the schools where they are going to further their studies.
As the learners went up quietly to light their own candles from the candle of the Year of Faith, there was a spirit of peace, unity, prayer and praise. Everyone was moved by the experience. What a day to end the year of faith as a school with the Bishop.
After church the learners gave a short concert for the visitors. They performed INGOMA (Zulu dance), UMSHADO (Zulu wedding) and Gospel choir. The staff also did their own dance, and even the visitors could not hold back, they joined in the dance.
