Harmony Park Celebrates Human Rights Day

On Friday, 24 March, Harmony Park School celebrated Human Rights Day. The students themselves used various art forms to help educate their fellow students on the meaning of this day.

The program was opened by all the students singing the National Anthem together. Hand-outs were distributed to ensure that everyone could participate in this act. Afterwards, Mr Ngcobo told the students why this day is celebrated. Nqobile Ngema, a student at Harmony Park, recited a poem themed “Let’s Celebrate our Heroes” and another group of students acted out the Sharpeville Massacre in a drama.

Melusi Dlamini took over at this stage and educated his fellow students about their human rights. The program was brought to a close by the principal of the school, Mr M.J. Nyandeni, who gave a vote of thanks to everyone involved.

The president, Mndebele Samkelo, and deputy president, Sinehlanhla Sibangoni, of the school were also the program directors for the day. Events such as these indicate the importance of students and the creativity that students hold when commemorating a day such as this.
