St David’s Day crossed the cultural divide when four primary schools of the Quthing district joined together to celebrate our national day.
Villa Maria Primary played host to a mixture of traditional Welsh and Sesotho, dancing, singing and poetry.
The host school opened the celebrations with their impressive choir, followed by an African style recital of William Wordsworth’s, Daffodils.
Kathleo Primary followed with a lively aerobics routine.
While Phahameng performed a dance in full welsh costume and Moyeni looked effective in their traditional grass skirts.
The afternoon’s events were kicked off by a short rugby match where the rules were quickly mastered by some enthusiastic boys who soon developed a healthy competitive spirit.
The competitive nature continued in the cultural quiz between Welsh and Basotho teachers, where the forfeit for a wrong answer was a custard pie in the face.
The party was in full swing when children and teachers took to the stalls for sponge throwing, cakes, nail painting and a raffle.
As the successful proceedings drew to an end it was evident that cultural understanding had been strengthened and how the Wales/Lesotho link continues to flourish.
