South Africans have been swept up in the greeting game as young children shine every morning while giving out hugs and high-fives
Parklands, Cape Town – Many South African schools have adopted the now popular greeting system which allows children to choose how they want to be greeted before entering the classroom.
The first video we wrote about was a teacher at Paarl Boys’ Primary greeting each of her students and then came the cute video from Kimberly CBC which showed each of the students getting a chance to greet the class.
Now the Parklands CBC school have launched the idea and the video of the children greeting each other has our hearts melting. Their smiles, giggles of laughter and the amazing show of love had our faces beaming with joy.
The Hedgehog class was filmed while Wongani Mnthambala had his chance as the class greeter and his reaction to giving and receiving hugs was the best thing we have seen this week.
“What truly touches me is that in every video of seen like this globally, 80% of these precious children choose to be hugged over and above all the other greets.” – Chantal Rawat
“The whole of South Africa (and possibly the world) needs to see how precious pure love and innocence is in children” – Kemo Setshogoe
“Love his little giggle as he hugs everyone. Amazing idea!” – Christina Apsey
Take a look at the adorably heartwarming reactions below. We just love this concept!
