LEPHALALE — The learners from Sedibeng Combined school in Onverwacht celebrated Casual Day on Friday 2nd September together with members of the South African Military Health Service (SAMHS) training centre in Lephalale. It is an annual event that they spend this day together with the learners from Sedibeng.
The Sedibeng learners listened with attention when Capt. Ricardo du Preez said that Casual Day is one of the biggest fund raising initiatives in the country. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of people with disabilities and obviously to raise funds for people with disabilities.
Casual Day also gives people the opportunity to learn to understand how to handle disabled people better. And you can do your part by buying a sticker for R10.
“We take this annual event with Sedibeng very seriously, but it should also be a fun day and that is why we dress up like this” Capt. Du Preez continued.
“People with disabilities have certain restrictions but they should all live a normal life”.
Various prizes that were raised by the SAMHS through sponsors and donations were presented to the best dressed, etc.
Mr. Mothiba gave a motivational speech, there was a Khwelakhwela group dance, drama and a fashion parade.
The hearing impaired learners entertained their fellow learners with a performance, led by Tessa Pugh, through sign language.
The learners as well as the teachers enjoyed a joyous day together with the SAMHS members.
