Schools got talent

■ The Rainbow Dreams Trust, which is based in Masiphumelele, performed a powerful piece at this year’s Artscape Theatre Centre Schools’ Arts Festival. More than 100 Western Cape schools took part in the festival. Thokozile Ntshinga, director of the Artscape’s Inclusive Arts Unit, said: “The arts have a central role to play in nation building, therefore the schools’ arts festival gives pupils the opportunity to showcase their talent on a professional stage, in the form of music, verse or dance. Furthermore, the festival also stimulates a love for theatre and the performing arts, while creating an individual sense of self-esteem, pride and achievement.”
