Mwangaza Children's choir visits Victor Harbor

“Amazing,” “vibrant” and “thrilling” were some of the word used to describe the Mwangaza Children’s Choir. The 18 children from Uganda brought a rich cultural experience of African dance, drums, song and story to Victor.

Investigator College’s Head of Performing Arts Matthew Freeborn said: “Students, staff and parents couldn’t wipe the smiles from their faces with such a joyful and energetic performance.

“Having the children then visit our classrooms for the rest of the day was a wonderful opportunity for our students to connect cultures and make new friends.”

The hosts at Victor Harbor Church of Christ shared some of the sights of Victor. Being a landlocked country, the children found the ocean “breathtaking”. 

Sahr Ronald Jarvouhey, the Team Leader for Mwangaza’s Australasian Tour said: “Mwangaza’s experience at Victor Harbor awakened the minds of the children to dream bigger. It sparks within them a hope that transformation in their own society is possible.

“Thank you people of Victor Harbor, Investigator College and the Church of Christ for your kindness, generosity and support as we build these young leaders.”

Donations received will help build a secondary school in Uganda.
