The President Award Club organised its maiden programme for the year. It started off with a cultural display and poetic rendition. Melodious songs were performed by St Matthews’s pupils (Sibonise Gcilitshana, Luyolo Maweza, Sisipho Bashman and Buhle Yiwani). The singing was climaxed with a beautiful Xhosa poem presented by Luyolo Maweza to welcome the DSG and St Andrews college pupils.
Learners were separated into 7 groups whereby they had different topics to discuss regarding social and political issues in our country, as well as the world. This exercise brought the students together – building friendships, and getting to know one-another.
It was great to hear everyone’s opinion and gather different views on everyday-life issues which dealt with teenage-life. We thank St Andrews and DSG for the visit in our school, We had so much fun, and we would be so happy if we could do this some other time.
