KNYSNA NEWS & VIDEOS - Tuesday, April 18 was an exceptional day at Percy Mdala High School in Khayalethu, Knysna, with some famous South African musicians that paid a visit to the school bringing with them much needed supplies to give parts of the school a facelift.
Ngane Sikobi, music producer and artist manager, along with recording artist Duncan and newly signed local boy Arab, selected Percy Mdala as part of a nationwide programme they are running, aimed at improving schools and sending a message of “anti-vandalism” among the youth.
Paint, brushes and rollers, and sandpaper were among some of the supplies these role models brought with them.
Principal of the school Nicholas Njoleza said this gesture means a lot to the school, which is in dire need of a revamp and renovation.
“It will definitely make a difference to our wish list of things the school needs,” he said.
Sikobi’s message was simple: “Look after your school. Don’t destroy or vandalise the property or resources, because some day your kids might have to come here.”
Duncan, after getting the kids to sing along with one of his famous songs, urged them to keep their individuality.
Arab told the kids not to be afraid to dream “because you never know where you’ll end up”.
