Westville

Play School. Pre-Primary. Junior Primary. Senior Primary. High School. Westville. Deep soaked in Rugby, Cricket, sunshine, humidity, mosquitoes, hills and greenery. Methodist. Anglican. Baptist church. Back to Methodist. I didn't choose teams to support. They were who I was. Banana Boys, then Sharks and Springboks. I was all in. Trying everything. Every day. I've spent more time away from Westville than in it. I wasn't born there. But if you are looking for the bubble that birthed me, Westville is it. My starting point. I grew up during Apartheid. It ended 3 years before I left. I belted out Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika and raised our Rainbow flag with pride.

Big School. A Start.
