Umhlanga College Pre-School Sing Nkosi Sikelel

Umhlanga College hosted Joe and Sally Zaluski from the Gulf Stream School in Florida, on their recent trip to South Africa. Joe Zaluski is the Headmaster of the Gulf Stream School, which is attended by the grandchildren of Umhlanga College benefactors, Robert and Robin Muir. Joe, Sally and Casey Wilson, the school’s Development Director, were visiting as emissaries of the Muirs.

The Gulf Stream School and Umhlanga College have a number of points of common interest to share with each other, as regards school management, curriculum matters, teacher development and the like.

In welcoming them into the community, Umhlanga College’s Executive Head Greg Brooks, took the Zaluski’s through each Phase of the School. Their school tour started down in the Pre-School, where the children sang them a few African songs, including a stirring rendition of ‘Nkosi Sikelel’. They then went on to meet the pupils and staff of the Junior and Senior Primaries, and High School Phases.

There was further opportunity for teachers to engage with Joe, Sally and Casey at a staff meeting, and for parents, over cappuccinos, at an informal talk he gave in the School coffee shop. The Zaluski’s also visited the School’s various community outreach projects, a few other independent schools in KZN and some favourite local spots in Umhlanga Village. Their visit culminated in a cocktail party at which Senior Primary Umhlanga College musicians performed, and the Zaluski’s were presented with a beautiful painting of the iconic Umhlanga lighthouse, to take home with them.
