Grade 10 Soweto Tour 2014 

 Seven taxis came to De La Salle Holy Cross College with tour guides on 28th February 2014. We grouped up in groups of about 10 or more students. We left school and headed for the FNB stadium. In the taxi, my tour guide explained the hand signs and the history of taxi’s.  After being at the stadium, we went to Regina Mundi church.

At the church, we learnt the history of it and how it was a safe place for the people during apartheid. We learnt about different things and facts in the Church, like the stained glass windows and the black Madonna. We also visited the photography exhibition, which was very meaningful and touching.

We left the Church and headed off to Mama Lulu’s Day Care centre. This was such an awesome experience because the children were so cute. At the beginning, we were introduced to the helpers and then the children sang songs to us. We spent about thirty minutes there, playing with the children and babies, as well as taking pictures.

After the Day Care, we went to see where Nelson Mandela lived. Thereafter, the next stop was The Shack, where we ate lunch. This was a very cool experience – a shebeen. There was an acapella group and three men who were double jointed, entertained us.

We went to the Hector Pieterson Museum – which was a life-changing experience. It was emotional hearing the stories and watching video clips of what happened in the 1976 uprising, and listening to what people had to say about the day.

We visited a Sangoma at the Baragwanath Market place and some people who were selling cow heads. We witnessed many formal and informal businesses in Soweto.

It was a great experience for the Grade 10s.
