The Miss & Mr. Jean got more exciting towards the end when winners got their prizes. Lots of exhilaration which went hand in hand with tears of joy emerged resulting on various participants not being able to comment on the question asked by DR DREAM SAYS. “I entered modeling competitions for three times but never won, this is my first award. It comes after the lot of effort, confidence and believing in me,” said a crying Nosipho Shabangu (13) who got the 1st position.
“If it wasn’t for my friends, Zanele Msiza, Nok’thula Mahlangu, Ntando Chauke and all my class mates, I wouldn’t have done it. All thanks to mam Molele,” added Shabangu.

Learners do not seem to have a problem with the conduct of the school during the spring day. “I love playing with water. I will attend all my classes, I will not bank school. After school that is when I will go with my friends to play with water,” said Nosipho Shabangu, a grade 8 learner.
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.
