The school is a government (public) school and it obeys the orders, rules and regulation made by the state government. “If we want to make a spring day event, we apply to the department of education. If they give us the permission, then we inform the parents, therefore we have a spring day,” added Mangezi.
Classes were packed with learners and their teachers giving lessons as usual. Quite a few number of learners were outside their classes, some at the playing ground, Mangezi explained that by saying “Those at the ground are with their Life Orientation (LO), some are practicing for the “Jean-Day” that will be happening tomorrow.”
Instead of celebrating the spring day today, they (DC Marivate S. School) will be having a Jean Day tomorrow. The event is aimed at raising funds for the school. “Learners will be all wearing jean clothes and will be participating in various activities organised by the school committee. Activities include Miss & Mr Jean, Parading, fashion show, jokes, singing, dancing and drama. There will be educational prices to be won,” said Mrs Molaodi, the event organiser.
