School Activities

 

Festivals and Ceremonies

At our school, we celebrate festivals at various points throughout our calendar year. This gives our children a deep sense of connection to time related events that communities hold as important. These festivals connect us with the cycles of nature that are dictated to by the solar and the lunar calendar. It calls for a celebration of the yearly rhythms through songs, stories, performances, music and the sharing of experiences. At Khanyisa School, we pride ourselves on acknowledging as many different religious or cultural festivals that we can and that have meaning to our learners and their communities.
