Hout Bay Exhibit

BY RAFIQ RASHIED, GRADE 8

In August Lalela hosted the very first Hout Bay High exhibition. We showed our parents the art we have been working on this year. I felt very proud to see my art up, and I didn’t know that so many parents were going to attend. It made me really happy to see all of them there, to see that they care about what we are doing. There were many community members that attended. The grade 8 - 12 students’ artwork was exhibited. Our parents were very proud to see our artwork in the exhibition.

My facilitators Husain Essop and Marc Oppelt gave a presentation to our parents and our principal Mr. Julias gave a speech on the importance of art for learners.
