Festival fun for the whole family

Catch live music at the festival.

After the huge success of the Ahgie-festival last year and the community’s support, Afrikaanse Hoërskool Germiston will be hosting a festival again this year.

This year also marks the 70th anniversary of the school.

The Ahgie-festival will have something for young and old alike and takes place on the school’s sports fields from 8am to 4pm.

The school thanks Jacques van Wyk, the owner of Pick n Pay Lambton and Hazel Park, for the huge contribution he has made towards the festival to ensure its success.

Dinky Dolly Nursery School and Heavenly Flowers Private School will keep the youngsters occupied with a programme of events which will include the Mr and Miss Heavenly Flowers competition, a jumping castle, performances by the youngsters and much more.

Entry forms for the Mr and Miss Heavenly Flowers competition are available from Heavenly Flowers’ branches or email [email protected]

There are a number of age categories to suit children from three months old to 12 years old.

Primary and high school learners can take part in fun activities and a soccer competition.
