A Cape Town mom who wanted to host a small intimate matric ball dance for her daughter and friends has expressed shock after learning that the invitation had gone viral on social media.
This year many schools have failed to host the matric ball due to restrictions on social events as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Cape Town mom decided to host a private event intended for her daughter and friends.
The mom told the Cape Argus that the event was scheduled to take place on December 15 at Suikerbossie in Hout Bay.
“My daughter’s school was initially going to have a matric ball (but will not). I asked her if she wanted one for her and her friends and she said yes, and then it just kind of happened,” she told the Cape Argus.
The invitation which was shared on Facebook has now reached over 500 shares, way above the capacity limit of 50 learners.
She said the invite would be removed from Facebook, adding that the private event would require indemnity forms to be signed off and strict Covid-19 protocols would be observed.
