Heritage Day is a public holiday in South Africa celebrated on September 24. On this day, South Africans across the spectrum are encouraged to celebrate their culture and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions, in the wider context of a nation that belongs to all its people. Because school was closed for the Spring Break on September 24, Charles Duna held its Heritage Day celebration on October 03.
Under the leadership of Mr. Mfunda, with us (Study Abroad Interns) as Project Managers, the 7th Graders created and presented a Heritage Day Celebration, where they honored the culture heritage of the India people, San people and the Xhosa people.
Jaimee was the Project Manager for the India people.
Amber was the Project Manager for the Xhosa people.
i was the Project Manager for the San people.
Former students of Charles Duna came and performed at the celebration.
Even the 4th Graders dressed for the occasion.
