Rainbow Run at Maranatha

Rainbow Run
A colourful runner

Rainbow Run at Maranatha. On the 2nd of September Maranatha celebrated the start of spring with the first of what we believe will be many family Rainbow Runs.

It was a day of colour and excitement. The more serious runners competed in a 3 km run, punctuated with rainbow splashes. Our fastest lady (Vicky Hancock) and gentlemen (Siyanda Msibi and Motsumi Ntai) winners walked away with a voucher from Kebar Book and Coffee Shop and a well-decorated set of clothes!

Our fastest junior runner was Fulu Ramathuba. 150 people registered for the races, with some competing in the serious 3 km run and others enjoying the ‘family waddle’. There were also prizes for the ‘best decorated’ participants after the race, and choosing our winners was no easy task. However, Gert Putter, Dom Hoatson, Pearl Phiri and Joshua de Waal stood out.

After the racing, families enjoyed a picnic in the sun and played soccer and volleyball. We wish to thank every participant for joining us in this special time in which we stood with our families to remember the promise of peace with God symbolized in the rainbow.

Thanks also to Ralph Rabe, Deon Greyling, and Andre de Waal for the beautiful photography and video and to Bryce Pretorius for manning the grill so… manfully. We’ll see you all next year!

Maranatha Thespian’s Visit Montecasino

During the course of the school holidays, learners of the Maranatha Thespian group went on a trip to visit the Montecasino Theatro.

With great effort to keep the excitement under control, the learners went to Montecasino on Saturday, the 9th of July, to watch the production of the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. It was a spectacular performance and fine humor had them all rolling with laughter! Jonathan Roxmouth played the role of the Elvis Pharoah superbly well and really won the crowd over.

Afterwards, they enjoyed a lovely meal with a delicious milkshake at a true Italian Pizzeria. The learners are looking forward to another visit at the Montecasino Theatro in the nearby future!
