The stage at Optima College was set alight by blind and partially sighted students on Valentine’s Day, when they confidently took to the stage in a pageant.

Keynote speaker Lebogang Manyane, the Gauteng chairperson of South African Blind Women in Action, encouraged the audience to have self-love first, before they share that special feeling with someone else.

Lindy Nkosi and Vuyo Sirayi mesmerised their audience as they were crowned Mr and Miss Optima College.

“We are so proud of our students’ achievements. Many of them hide their talents and only show them off at opportunities like this,” said SANCB Education Officer Joseph Mabanga.
