The GMA Matric Dance Special

The GMA Matric Dance Special

Karabo Lekobane and Nthabeleng Dikgore from Munsieville are two of the ten matriculants who were featured in our Good Morning Angels Matric Farewell bumper Edition in September. Last week Thursday they celebrated their Matric Farewell Dance. 


A few months ago we received two incredible letters that read:

Karabo stays in a two roomed house in Munsieville township outside Krugersdorp. She lives in the house with her mom and 4 siblings – as well as her aunt, uncle and their  5 children. She is a hard working young lady. Her performance at school is very impressive – especially when you think of her situation. She was awarded the academic achiever certificate for the first six months of this year. She studies very hard because she wants to become a doctor. Karabo braves through any tribulations and has a positive outlook on life.  I know her from our church. Karabo sings in the choir and she is in the leadership of the youth group (Redeemed youth). Karabo would never complain, but I know she would love to go to her schools' matric farewell and I know that her family cannot afford a new dress. Could you please help to show this hardworking young lady, that her efforts are noticed and that she is very special indeed, by helping us find a dress for her. 

Dear Good Morning Angels,


I would like to introduce you to a very special young lady. Her name is Nthabeleng Bridget Dikgore, she is a matric student at Thutolefa secondary school in Munsieville. She lives with her mom (she is a domestic worker who takes piece-jobs, but she is not very reliable). Nthabeleng's older sister passed away. She is left looking after her sisters’ children. She provides for them with a  state grant and takes the little ones to church every Sunday. She ensures that they stay out of trouble, cooks for them, does their washing and makes sure that they do their homework and go to school. She has no one to look out for her, but she is trying to live a positive life. Besides all these responsibilities, she does very well at school, even though she has a hearing problem and uses an old hearing aid. My wish for her is to have a special matric farewell dance, so that she can be treated for once in her life, without having to stand back. She will never spend the little money they have on something for herself, let alone and expensive dress.    


Last week Thursday saw Karabo Lekobane and Nthabeleng Dikgore's dreams come true as they were transformed into beautiful princesses ahead of their Matric Farewell dance. 

All the matriculants also received a R2000,00 shopping voucher for shoes and accessories from Busby/Call it Spring and shopped in Sandton City with Miss SA 2015, Liesl Laurie at Sandton City.

Karabo looked incredible, dressed by 'The Boys - Niko and Arnold' and Nthabeleng stunned in a design from 'The House of Superior' by Mercia van der Walt.
