greeting game

St Patricks CBC in Kimberly shared an adorable video of a PR class playing the greeting game and it is warming the hearts of all South Africans.


Kimberly, South Africa – Mrs Seaward from St Patricks CBC in Kimberly has asked each of her learners to be a weekly greeter in her class. Much like Miss Zuleka from Paarl Boys’ Primary who went viral earlier this month for letting her class pick how they get greeted, Mrs Seaward is giving the children in her class the same opportunity. Only this time, the children get to be the greeters.

This week young Eli got to be the week’s happy greeter. The video is warming the hearts of everyone who sees it. The children are given 5 different choices each morning including hugs, high-fives, fist-bumps, the Wakanda salute and a hand gesture which takes some practice from Eli, but eventually he gets it.

Many viewers of the video feel that South Africa’s future is very bright with young children coming up.

Funny how children who only have less than 10 years on this Earth knows more about humanity than adults who’ve been here for decades I have a good feeling about the future so much to be learned from these children” – Khutso Mehlape

Come on people let’s all be like this children. Love each other like we never loved before…” – Erica Kellerman

Somebody stop cutting onions please… beauty in this clip is undefinable” – Mhlengi Sbonelo Zikhali 

Take a look at the heartwarming video below. We think this greeting game should be implemented in every school across South Africa.
