Ga Makofane’s youth learn about their culture

BURGERSFORT – A good relationship between a school and the community is vital, as the teamwork uplifts the institution’s standards.This was said by Moisele Primary School principal, Meriam Thabo Mdhluli, during Heritage Day celebrations held at the school on September 28.

“We are celebrating our heritage in traditional style today, and the community is here to support us,” said Mdhluli. The event was a cultural fair as the attendees donned traditional clothes and were served dishes which were customary at such occasions. Learners also took part in various extramural activities which included music, gumboot dances and poems that thrilled the crowd.

The guest speaker, Kgoshigadi Hunadi Makofane, added flavour to the event by encouraging people to respect their cultural norms and values.She went on to blast those who undermine the authority of the tribal leaders saying, “This has led to deaths, persistent droughts, hunger and starvation.

“People should respect their heritage by keeping their norms and values. Most of you have lost and forgotten about these. You lack respect for your leaders.”That is why people die at a tender age nowadays. Rain is now scarce and such suffering will be an ongoing process,” she warned.
