The “jean-day” was the name given to the first Friday of September at DC Marivate Secondary School where pupils wore jean clothes and participated in various activities organized by the school for enjoyment and fund-raising purposes.
Number of activities including parading, singing, jokes and dancing took place but the main theme of the event was the Miss and Mr. Jean (involving fashion show) which is the only category that offered prizes (educational prizes).
The event started at 10:00am and ended at 14:30pm. Learners were out in numbers to support their peers as they show case their talents. While the girls were showing off with their sexy bodies and doing great moves, the guys were showing off with money and clothes. One of the most hilarious and flabbergasting moments was when the boys got on to the field and started playing around with money, putting it in a full glass of cold drink and washing their hands and faces with drinks.
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.

The judges were fair and happy with the progress of the event. “We are happy with the outcome. The ladies showed a lot of effort and were looking stunning, thanks to their choreographers for such great work,” said Nozipho Mdlalose who was one of the judges.

The school succeeded with the purpose of the event which was to raise funds while celebrating the first week of September. “We were targeting an amount of R5000 on this day. Each learner contributed R10. We still haven’t counted how much we’ve risen but it’s very convincing,” said Mrs. BH Molaodi, event organizer.
“We come up with a number of projects for the school. Our intention is to have TVs in all the classes for subjects that require technological equipment. Another thing is that we want to erect benches for learners to seat on during lunch time,” added Molaodi.

Normal school day during spring day

Thousands of students and learners were expected to bank classes to celebrate the spring day on the 1st of September, but surprisingly this was not the case at the DC Marivate Secondary School, in Block H.

Learners remained calmly and attentively in their classes since morning till afternoon and programmes continued as normal as any other day. “Learning and teaching is the order of the day in our school, we don’t compromise, even other activities that are not planned in our school, we don’t entertain them. We stick to our mind and plan,” said Mr B.J Mangezi, the principal of the school.

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.

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.
