Sisters of Mercy Honoured for Multiracial Education
Youth Day at St Teresa’s School in Craighall Park, Johannesburg, celebrated the 20000 Soweto pupils who helped to change South Africa during the June 16 uprising in 1976. Fr Thabo Motshegwa conducted Mass for Grades 2 to 12 in Rosebank parish. This was followed by songs, dances and poems from learners in all three phases of the school. Two 1980s alumni also spoke about the part the Sisters of Mercy played in educating children of all races.
