The Magic sound of Africa

Hi there Roggerz and Academy supporters,

We were treated to a very special event on Friday as Sophakama took ownership of a piano to accompany the school choir.

This generous donation came from Callie Lewis from Books and Beyond. The piano originally belonged to Callie’s late mother, Barbara, who was also passionate about education. The piano was fitted with a plaque in memory of Barbara Hibling who would have been delighted to see this instrument continue to bring joy to many children.

We were joined for the handover ceremony by Callie’s dad David Hibling, husband Dale, Tracey and Darryl Farquhar, Oupa Ockie and a team of Roggerz including various Sophakama moms.piano donation edit 3 (Custom)

The school choir, who often represents the “Face of Sophakama”, responded joyfully by entertaining us with heartwarming songs in their new hall.

With sincere thanx to the Hibling Family,

From the ROGZ Academy and Sophakama
