The Day of Expression is an annual event organised by the Rhodes Park School Parents and Teachers Association (RPS PTA), and is a platform where the talent of our pupils is not only displayed but also nurtured. This year’s event was held on Saturday 22nd July 2017.

 

The mesmerizing event, packed with top of the form quizzes, debates, dances and finger-licking food was delivered much to the delight of the learners at the Sibweni campus. The event saw over 1,600 attendants accessing various stands where foods, toys and other valuables where on sale.

On this day, various dances and performances rehearsed over a period of 3 months were finally delivered with a sense of passion and pride among participating pupils. Notwithstanding a shaky start due to an unanticipated fault with the public address system, the event rebounded with buzzling momentum that saw it run until 16:00 hours.

The Rhodes Park School Parents and Teachers Association (RPS PTA) is delighted to have provided a platform for grooming and nurturing talent, a practice which underlies the school’s philosophy of providing education for the real world. The PTA is proud that extracurricular events such as the Day of Expression have been foundational to talent which has matured to the level of what has been seen in former pupils of Rhodes Park School such as Kalale Musenge a seasoned Zambian musician popularly known as Caladocious and Elijah Zgambo a music and cultural art promoter who runs Street Culture and Art Events.

This event’s outcome has given us the boldness to be upbeat about the 2018 Day of Expression!
