Led by their teacher Mr Schoeman, this group of Heidedal Primary pupils are participating in the George Municipal “World of Tomorrow Festival” and will be performing their play about creating awareness around energy efficiency.
They will highlight their concern around the wasting of electricity, and the poisonous gases which are affecting climate change. Their 15 minute play in Afrikaans will see them go on a protest march to raise awareness, and they will hand out spekbome for planting and flyers about Energy Efficiency to their communities during the protest.
Heidedal Primary will perform on 31st July at George Arts Theatre in the festival which has been launched as a drama competition for 2019. They will be competing against fellow drama groups from Blanco Primary, St Mary’s Primer, Hibernia Primary and Kretzenhoop Primary. An independent judging panel has been put in place constituting energy experts and drama experts and floating trophies as well as prizes will be awarded to the schools and those outstanding students, with each participant receiving a Certificate of Attendance. The intention is that this grows into an annual event.
The winning school (primary and high school) will perform at the Gala Evening being held on Friday 2nd August. Tickets are available for attendance at the Primary School evening on 31st July for parents of participating schools via your child’s drama teacher and for any other members of the public interested in attending please contact Heather Stead on 072 369 3304 with tickets costing R30 for adults and R20 for learners.
