The le­ar­ners we­re con­fu­sed w­hen the te­am ar­ri­ved, but the at­mos­p­he­re soon chan­ged w­hen La­na Don, en­vi­ron­men­tal he­alth practi­ti­o­ner of the GRDM of­fi­ce in Ge­or­ge, led them with a song, Hands, shoul­ders, knees and toes.

The high­lig­ht was w­hen the Youth for Chan­ge dra­ma group from Oudts­hoorn per­for­med va­ri­ous plays to con­vey mes­sa­ges re­la­ting to daily he­alth and hy­gie­ne practi­ces.

In one of the plays, the le­ar­ners wit­nes­sed how "their grand­mot­her" pas­sed a­way due to poor he­alth practi­ces and un­he­althy e­a­ting ha­bits.

This had so­me of them al­most in te­ars. The young au­dien­ce was not im­pres­sed with their "grand­ma's" bad, un­he­althy li­fe­sty­le which cau­sed her de­ath.

Em­my Doug­las, GRDM c­hief of Mu­ni­ci­pal He­alth, than­ked the school prin­ci­pal for warm­ly wel­co­ming the te­am on their ar­ri­val and al­lo­wing them to e­du­ca­te the le­ar­ners in re­spect of good he­alth and hy­gie­ne ha­bits. She ex­ten­ded a spe­ci­al word of gra­ti­tu­de to the dra­ma group.

"You por­tray­ed and con­vey­ed the mes­sa­ge to the le­ar­ners in the best way pos­si­ble," she said.
