SunCity gives local youth a platform to perform this youth day

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Local youths from two North West Province schools had the opportunity to showcase their singing and dancing talent at the legendary Sun City Theatre this Youth Day, Tuesday, 16 June 2015.
Some 40 learners shone on stage in a fun-filled and entertaining competition featuring poetry, dance, speech and song items highlighting the role of the youth in modern society. The competing schools were JM Ntsime High School in Mogwase and Charora High School in Chaneng.
The winner of the Dance Category was JM Ntsime High School and the winner of the Choir Category was Charora High School. Winning the Poetry Category was Kelebogile Nzala, a Grade 9 learner at JM Ntsime High School, and winning the Speech Category was Kedumetse Mokaaila, in Grade 11 at Charora High School. Sweets from Heaven kindly sponsored prize hampers for the winners.
The Youth Day celebration was hosted in partnership with LoveLife in the Rustenburg region, which runs several projects and programmes educating the youth about pertinent issues relating to health and wellness, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy amongst others. LoveLife has identified Ground Breakers in each of the participating schools to offer support and guidance to learners around the issues they face. These Ground Breakers identify children in their respective schools who are in need of help and work with them to build their self-worth and self-confidence.
“Through this Youth Day event, learners from the schools in which LoveLife has positively impacted the learners’ lives, had a voice to share and celebrate the trials and tribulations of being young in South Africa. It was a tremendously uplifting and spirited event to markYouth Day,” says Siphiwe Buthelezi, CSI Manager at Sun City.
The over-arching messages from the speakers at the event were that regardless of circumstance, South Africa’s youth should never give up; that they should continue dreaming and pursuingthose dreams until they become a reality.
Using the analogy of a lion, Leonard Marvey reminded the youngsters that “attitude” is everything. The lion may not be the largest in the animal kingdom, but because of its attitude, it is able to visualise itself as being bigger than an elephant.
