Petra High School Ndebele Zulu Day 2017



 Ndebele/Zulu day took place on the 26 of May 2017 in celebration of Africa Day. It is a day when the Petra High School Languages Department acknowledges the different Cultures of the students from all over the globe at Petra High. Each Culture unique and vibrant is acknowledged in dance, poetry and song. The students were encouraged to participate in the activities in which they showed so much dedication in creating the event under the theme Imvelo yinxenye yempilo yethu-Living  in harmony with nature.  The Petra high students were able to showcase their own stand as well as National parks, NUST’s department of Forest Resource and Wildlife Management, Chipangali, Natural History Museum
The walk in the park exhibitions opened the celebrations where the grade seven students from the primary were able to join the high school students to prance around viewing each stand. The later the rest of the celebrations were held in the Petra High Pavilion. The National Anthem sang by the choir opened the event. Followed by an action packed poem by one of the Petra students. The Masters of Ceremony, the head boy Daniel Lasker and head girl Ivonne Meares were in charge of the activities as well as Mr S Nkomo and Iff Achinulo ensured a smooth transition as they acknowledged each event and kept the audience entertained. It was great to see the woks of such talented student as the choir sang a beautiful musical piece by Solomon Linda.  

Highlights were given to the skit, which is the first of its kind a Petra High production by Daniel Nxumalo (in the jungle which was the funniest puppet show I have seen and passed on the message of the event in harmony with nature) which captivated the students and the guests, which brought together the combination of language barriers. The audience enjoyed the presentations and interpretations done in the script which used a lot of nothing to make little of everything

Congratulations to all who participated.
