#whsfridayfact  South African Children Visit Windlesham 6/3

In 2013, we were lucky enough to host a group of South African children from the township Etwatwa.   It was the first time they had left their village, which is just outside Johannesburg. The children were aged from 10 – 12 and they all played in a traditional African xylophone (marimba) band. They performed a number of concerts for local primary schools and the general public.  Some of our own pupils were lucky enough to learn to play the marimba and when they finally left for their home country, they made a gift to the school of one of the instruments.   Whilst here they enjoyed, for the first time in their lives, hot running water, electricity and a visit to the cinema to see The Lion King.
