Estralita School’s christmas party – a heartwarming, special day

MASHISHING – Estralita Special School was treated to a memorable Christmas party recently. This annual event is a joyful day that the school’s pupils look forward to every year. Judging by the looks on their faces, this year’s edition did not disappoint!

The day started with a word of welcome by the school’s principal, Ms Hanlie Swanepoel. She greeted the learners in almost half of the country’s official languages and they greeted her back fluently. Guests of Laerskool Bergland, accompanied by Ms Leanda Wells of Wiekus du Toit Attorneys and Lowveld Media, were treated to a show by the Estralita choir.

The school’s Ms Diane Munro said it was very proud of the choir. They sang a religious hymn – perfectly in tune – and broke into song and dance with a fun African medley. Estralita’s pupils presented its guests with delicious cookies as Christmas presents and the celebrations continued with a modern version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Lowveld Media’s team put their acting skills to the test and had a lot of fun doing so. The grinch tried to steal this year’s Christmas presents, but the Estralita pupils helped the police to track her down. This was followed by a loud shout-out to Father Christmas, who came all the way from the North Pole to save the day.

Each and every pupil received a Christmas gift. Great fun and games followed as the children played on M’s Springkastele’s jumping castles, made available by Ms Jackie Annandale. They also had their hair sprayed and faces painted in bright colours. A giant Estralita Christmas cake was served as a sweet playtime snack. Lydenburg’s Pick n Pay and SPAR stores catered for the cake, while BronPro treated the children to cold drinks. It was a wonderful day where new friends were made and being human was celebrated with passion.

A special word of thanks is extended to Laerskool Bergland, who contributed greatly to make the day worthwhile.
