St Francis College pupils celebrated Heritage Day with a ‘Proudly South African’ civvies day on 23 September. Despite the Springboks’ dodgy performance in their opening Rugby World Cup game recently, pupils and teachers showed off patriotic spirit in style with rugby shirts and national flags a-plenty. Perhaps they had a sixth sense that the Boks would be back in form with a convincing win against Samoa a week later.
During a special assembly, pupils shared stories about their cultural backgrounds and the smell of braaivleis drifted across the fields, where everybody enjoyed a traditional ‘boerie roll’ at break-time.
