2019 DLSHCC Highland Gathering

IMG-20190528-WA0004

 At 8am on the morning of 25th of May, the tune of a lone piper was carried on the crisp morning air from St Solomon's Field at De La Salle Holy Cross College. This would signal the start of one of the community's most popular events - the 2019 DLSHCC Highland Gathering.

The field was soon buzzing with all the special guests - the Pipers and Drummers, as well as the graceful traditional Dancers - who really brought this amazing event to life and entertained the thousands of visitors.
 
It wasn't just the bands and dancers who attracted attention - the varied market kept shoppers busy for hours, while their little ones explored the giant inflatables and climbing wall. The many delicious food stalls ensured all the attendees were well fed, and for young and old alike the tea garden - with its view onto the toddler play area - offered a quiet retreat from the crowd. 

The bustling market-style beer garden had an atmosphere that was hard to beat, and its dedicated Gin, Wine and Beer bars really added to the festive feel of the day.

As is tradition, the Mass Bands at the end of the day brought awe and goosebumps as over 100 hundred pipers marched across the field - the perfect end to a beautiful day. 
"A huge thank you goes out to my team, and everyone who contributed to the enormous success of the event - and to all the visitors who enjoyed a little Highlands Heritage with the College on the day” said Rosemary Attwell, organiser of the event.

15 May 2019:

15 May was the feast day of Saint John Baptist De La Salle.  The day was the main focus for the College celebrations in 2019.  Archbishop Buti Thlagale, the Archbishop of Johannesburg, attended to celebrate the Jubilee Mass which was said on the High School rugby field at 9.00 am followed by a day of celebratory activities for the children, performances by the choir, blessings, etc. 
The learners and staff of La Salle College joined the College, as did Little Explorers Pre-primary and representatives from Tsholofelo. A great day was had at the College!
The theme for this international event: One Heart, One Commitment, One Life.
