“We always think nothing big ever happens in Bonnievale.” Thus begins a letter that arrived in the Bonnievale Wines post box last week. Written by a learner, it followed an school trip that Bonnievale Wines helped realise.

The entire Grade 12 classes of Bonnievale High School undertook a sponsored trip to the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town to see Athol Fugard’s My Children, My Africa – a story of generational conflict over the most effective means for ending apartheid in South Africa.

“The show was unbelievable. It was a realistic look at a time we never would have understood if it were not for the show,” says the letter-writer. “The story also taught us valuable lessons around kindness to people no matter their background or circumstances.

“Thank you to everyone who made this special event possible.”
