It was a special day for iThemba, because sponsoring Austrian Airlines paid the school a visit. On this morning there were mixed feelings of anxiety and excitement, while the space was being set up for the event.

The children were excited to present their artwork to the airline crew and proudly performed their song without a hitch. The children and the crew really enjoyed spending time together.
