MUIR COLLEGE HONOURS ENOCH SONTONGA
Enoch Sontonga, composer of 'Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika', was honoured at the Muir College Prize Giving held last Thursday. Headmaster, Robin Stephenson said that the school considered it appropriate to add the Enoch Sontonga Trophy for “Cultural Leadership” to its prize list.
Mr. Sontonga was born in Uitenhage and his musical piece has become a symbol of national unity.
Mr. Sontonga’s great grandson, Mr. Winston Rapotapi (presently the D.A. shadow Minister of Arts and Culture) said the family felt “greatly honoured” that the school had honoured their great grandfather in this way.
The first recipient of the Enoch Sontonga Award was Aphiwe Zinto.
MUIR COLLEGE CHARITY GOLF DAY
Port Elizabeth – 05 September 2016 – This year Muir College Boys’ High School in Uitenhage extended their generosity to Thand’usana Babies Safe Home in Port Elizabeth, hosting their very first Charity Golf Day on 18 August 2016 at the The Hill, Port Elizabeth Golf Club in support of this independent Non-Profit Organisation (NPO).
The Muir College Charity Golf Day that took place in Port Elizabeth attracted a number of local companies who were all very eager to jump in and help with sponsorships and donations for this cause.
On 5 September 2016, Mr. Robin Stephenson, Headmaster of Muir College Boys’ High School visited Thand’usana Babies Safe Home to do the official handover of the funds that were raised at the Charity Golf Day. “The experience was truly heartwarming, we would really like to make this an annual event.” Mr. Stephenson explained.
Lorna Lamerton, the House Mother of Thand’usana Babies Safe Home thanked Muir College for initiating the Charity Golf Day. “We very much appreciate that you kept us in mind!” Lorna added.
Thand’usana Babies Safe Home is a temporary safe haven who cares for HIV infected or ill-treated babies until a more permanent solution can be implemented. Thand’usana provides a safe and loving home for no more than six babies at a time and ensure that they are placed with the right families when the time comes. They are a self-governing NPO and rely mostly on the generosity and support of others. For more information and to get involved, visit: www.thandusana.co.za.
