GEORGE NEWS - Youth Day at the St Mary's Seed of Hope Resource Centre in Rosemoor was a day full of fun activities and inspirational words.
St Mary's Primary School Principal Ignatius Deyce told the children about the Soweto youth uprisings in 1976 and Realstart Trust Chief Executive Officer Peter Brodrick's keynote speech centred around the theme: 'Be a role model'.
The programme included traditional and gumboot dance performances, a drama based on the movie Sarafina, singing by the Seed of Hope children's choir and a dance act by Ruaan Josephs.
Action in the BMX competition drew a surprising number of entrants and onlookers.
Errol Jaftha, the project manager and event coordinator, expressed appreciation towards George Youth Cafe, Realstart Trust, Julia's Educare, George Municipality Youth Office and Catholic Church for contributing to the success of the day that drew a large crowd, including parents.
