Fun with Norman Henshilwood High School

31/10/2011

On Saturday, 29th October 2011 we braved the rain and had an outside broadcast at Norman Henshilwood High School (NHHS) in Constantia. The school had an inter-class touch rugby competition, where the pupils competed against each other.

The pupils, teachers and parents were kept entertained by Bush Radio 89.5FM, with Lusanda Bill as the host of special broadcast.

David Millar, principal at NHHS, said they “thought it would be a great opportunity for the school and the community to come together at a school sports day to celebrate the opening of their new West Campus.

The WCED (Western Cape Education Department) decided to build the West Campus at NHHS because it is a school of excellence and has a good academic history”.

Fun and games on the field

The competition was between grade 8s up to grade 11s, and in order to have a team each class had to choose six pupils to represent their class and compete against the other grades. The game allowed each team six touches per side and whoever runs to the goal post without being touched scored a point.

Courtney Delaney, NHHS deputy chairperson of the Learner Representative Council (LRC) said: “Today we are building relationships with each other through the inter-class rugby competition.”

Celebrating a fun day

The chairperson was asked how she felt about being the head girl at NHHS; “It is exciting being the chairperson, I am feeling the pressure but I do get the support from the school because it is one of the best schools you can get and we are one big family,” said Shabnam Hoosen, chairperson of the LRC.

The Bushradio team who handled the OB

Shandre Otto, deputy principal at NHHS said: “Thank you to all teachers and pupils who put this event together, and said to Bush Radio 89.5FM. We hope to have more of Bush Radio at NHHS.”

Isherene Siebritz, Bush Radio Marketing volunteer said the event was a success and “the community came together to celebrate the beginning of the new school”.

Getting down with the Villagers

The Bush Radio team in Garden Village

On Sunday, October 23, 2011 we had an outside broadcast at the Garden Village Primary School. The idea behind the OB was to promote the upcoming Village Day when Garden Village celebrates its 89th birthday. The weather was sunny, allowing the Villagers to set up their braai stands and tables to enjoy themselves.

The residents of Garden Village were kept entertained by Bush Radio’s Three Musketeers; Roger Lewis (Sensual Sundays 12pm-2pm), Dr Victor (Jazz on Bush 2pm-4pm) and Calvin Peters (Flashback 4pm-6pm).

Rene Hendricks, Marketing Director of Garden Village Residents Association said, “Today is a count down for the upcoming event, as we will be celebrating 89years of Garden Village’s existence. This event is definitely a very good sign that if people were able to come to this one, then the actual event will definitely be a success.”

Mrs October, Principal at Garden Village Primary School said “Lot of things in the community revolve around the school and there is no recreation and development. Therefore, the school has all the facilities the community needs”.

The people of Garden Village looked like one big happy family, as everyone gathered around with their families and greeted each other with warm smiles.

Dancing, Braaing and Broadcasting in Garden Village

Maureen Robertson, a resident at Garden Village said, “This is a special day for me, I have never heard of Bush Radio before and I knew nothing about it; but here I am today at my old age enjoying my time with Bush Radio, meeting you people. This is really the best thing that has happened to me, thank you Bush Radio.”

Gabiba Dames, an elderly resident at Garden Village said, “It’s the first time I see this happen, and it’s evident before my eyes that it has brought everyone together; it is a good thing to keep the interaction between the young and old. This should be done more often.”
