Sophakama sings in sounds of Africa

The Sophakama Primary School choir was singing a new tune on Friday 19 February in a special handover ceremony as they were gifted with a piano from Callie Lewis of Books and Beyond and her family.

This generous donation was the prized possession of Callie’s late mother Barbara Lewis, who was just as passionate about education as she was about music. A plaque was mounted on the piano in her honor to carry forward her legacy in bringing joy to children through the power of music.

The event was attended by by Callie’s dad David Hibling, husband Dale, Tracey and Darryl Faquhar, Oupa Ockie and a team of Roggerz including proud Sophakama parents and members of the community. With an instrument to hold their voices together, the choir, also known as “The Face of Sophakama” entertained the audience in African song and dance.

As a partner school of Partners for Possibility, Sophakama’s milestones and development further the work of the organisation, PfP Director Louise van Rhyn shared, “This is why Partners for Possibility exists – for the school to become the centre of community, for South African citizens to cross boundaries into areas and spaces that they have not been to before, for South Africans to rediscover the joy of our diversity, for adults to help children to discover what they are good at and because we are committed to a Flourishing South Africa.”
