South Africa is a mult-icultural country and every year people dress up in their traditional clothes to celebrate Heritage Day.

Moduopo Primary School celebrated this day on September 22.

The co-ordinator of youth and culture, Thomas Monyai, said it was a great honour for the school to celebrate Heritage Day. He said the purpose of the celebration was to make learners of Moduopo aware of the different cultures within the school.

Teachers wore traditional clothes.

“We made preparations with the learners from grade R to grade seven to choose different African cultures and present it to other learners.

“Throughout the year we are teaching heritage because subjects such as social science, arts and culture and life orientation are part of our heritage and indulge us to practice the arts,” said Monyai.

He said Heritage Day allowed learners to learn and respect cultures of one another.

Kgomotso Msimango, a teacher from Moduopo, said the learners were given tasks to research about different cultures in order to make this Heritage Day celebration unique.

“We gave them direction on how to approach the research of others cultures. We grouped them to promote Ubuntu among them. The goal we want to achieve is to make learners share their cultural values and norms,” said Msimango.

“We believe Heritage Day unites our learners here at Moduopo School. I wish Tembisa can build a hall to celebrate Heritage Day,” Msimango added.

Grade seven learner, Thato Ngele, said he felt very humbled to be part of the celebrations.

“I would like to say happy Heritage Day to everyone in Tembisa.”
