On Wednesday the 4th of October 2017, Meridian Cosmo City grade 12 students had their very first Matric dance. It was hosted at the Garden Venue in North Riding. It was done as a way for the school to bid the grade 12s a beautiful farewell.
Since the class of 2017 is the first Matric class at Meridian Cosmo City, the pupils were especially excited by the event, hosted in their honour. Filled with beautifully set tables with name tags so each student knew where to sit the venue was so beautiful one could swear it was for a Presidents dinner.
‘’ Ours is a first and because of that, it is very special, this year we are like parents who are seeing off their first born child coming of age.’’ Said Vusi Masuku, executive head at Meridian Cosmo City.
Young boys and girls came out in their best attire to celebrate themselves, and bid high school a final farewell and as they start their matric final exams soon. Grade 12s were screaming for their friends who arrived in stylist cars, dresses and suits and hair and nails done in styles that one knew was not cheap.
Teachers also came out to support their students and were dressed to impress, as the event was also meant to allow the teachers to celebrate the students and the strength the children have shown this past year.
‘’ This Matric dance shall forever set the standard for this school; we are celebrating what the school has been able to achieve since its inception in 2015. It is something a child who is in grade R can see and say that is the product of Meridian Cosmo City.’’ Explained Masuku
Matric Dances have been a right of passage for matriculates for many years and Meridian has finally joined the ranks of this high school tradition that has made high school all the more exciting for learners and worked as a motivation for the ones who are still on their way to grade 12.
