Xhosa week at EHS!

Edgemead High School hosted a Xhosa Week celebration in support of Africa Day 2019.

Learners celebrated the Xhosa culture by dressing up in their vibrant traditional clothing and hosting a fashion show for their school. A group of talented learners performed Xhosa songs acapella, while others showed off traditional Xhosa dances.

It was a great opportunity for learners to show off their culture, while also teaching their peers about their culture.

On the 25th of May, countries across the African continent will celebrate Africa Day 2019 in celebration of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity.
