Dear parents,

It’s our Day to Celebrate “Our Heritage”………… Happy Heritage Day.

Let us promise ourselves that we will do our bit to preserve our South African Heritage.

If we lose our heritage, we will have nothing left in our hands that define how glorious our past was. There is something unique and special about every South African culture, which makes it stand out.

Heritage Day on 24 September in every year recognizes and celebrates the cultural wealth of our nation. South Africans celebrate the day by remembering the cultural heritage of the many cultures that make up the population of South Africa. Various events are staged throughout the country to commemorate this day.

Heritage Day is an important day to celebrate culture by wearing traditional attire and cooking different cultural food. … We cook all kinds of traditional foods and allow kids to represent their cultures and dance, embracing our cultural lifestyle.

LittleGraduatesSchools 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. We also danced the popular song “Jerusalema” which has been proudly a celebrated single item in our Proudly Nation.

At our school, we decided that it would be a great learning experience if all our learners from grade RRR-Grade R, 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,”

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, because of diversity but they must remain loyal to their traditions.

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