And then the STUDENTS gave an awe-inspiring performance!!

Music teacher, Faith Marshall taught her students to sing Lift Every Voice and Sing.  Keeping with the South African theme, we were treated to the South African National Anthem - not an easy feat:
The lyrics employ the five most widely spoken of South Africa's eleven official languages - Xhosa (first stanza, first two lines), Zulu (first stanza, last two lines),Sesotho (second stanza), Africaans (third stanza) and English (final stanza). 
   French teacher, Edith Neal, wrote and directed the children in a play about the Ndebele of South Africa - based on the history of how several ethnic groups came together and unified into the Ndebele ethnic group that we know today.
