“Oh education…”


Day 12: Here we are in assembly. We really felt a part of the school community and loved joining in with the pupils each morning.



One of the teachers, Mr Mathonsi took the assembly on Tuesday and delivered an inspirational speech about the importance of education, enthusing all of us and encouraging us to work hard, “Oh education, life is a dark room without you. Your roots are sour, your roots are bitter but your fruits are so sweet. Even though it’s very challenging to learn, at the end of the day, education bears wonderful fruit.”

The learners were in agreement with Mr Mathonsi’s advice. His assembly was very motivational and summed up the widely held attitudes that most teachers and learners have towards education in South Africa. They really value its benefits and appreciate being able to learn.


We then spent the day helping learners to finish their ‘Inspire Aspire’ projects.



They were proud to be completing their glossy posters which we will enter into a U.K. competition.


About Kwazi Krusade

We are high-school pupils in our final year at school and feel very lucky to have the amazing opportunity to travel to our partnership school in South Africa for two weeks of learning and teaching. We can't wait to make new friends and experience a new culture. This blog will document our time there, so watch out for posts and pictures. Thanks y'all :)
