KDL ‘heritage swap’ a triumph

South Africa belongs to all of us, yet how much do we know about our fellow South Africans? King David Linksfield’s awareness and advocacy committee recently decided to bring the colours of our rainbow nation together for a “heritage swap” in celebration of Heritage Month.

More than 100 students from King David and Bona Comprehensive High School in Soweto came together on 3 October to learn about each other’s traditions, culture, and heritage. The day started off on a literal high note, as students from Bona Comprehensive got off the bus singing and dancing, dressed in colourful traditional costumes.

With the help of Robyn Smookler, the girls baked challah and the boys were given some insights by Rabbi Ash. We were then shown how to make Dombolo, an African traditional bread. Then onto the sports field, where we played volleyball, soccer, and netball in integrated teams. The day carried on with Bona Comprehensive students learning Israeli dances, which they did with ease. Admittedly, it took a little longer for King Davidians to master their traditional dances, but our efforts were valiant. We spent the rest of the day getting to know each other and discovered that, as diverse as our differences are, there’s far more that unites us.
