Summerwood Primary School celebrates a dazzling Spring Day on 1 September.

At Summerwood Primary School the theme for Spring Day was "Silly hats and socks". Hundreds of Summerwood learners attended school on 1 September in civilian clothes, interesting hats and odd socks.

According to Swisherpost South Africans celebrate Spring on 1 September because it marks the end of winter and the start of great tropical weather.

"South Africa often starts seeing an increase in international arrivals around this time. The weather conditions, matched with our prideful scenic environments, make our country one of the best travel destinations in the world.

The magic of the spring season permeates on 1 September. There is unexplained energy that reverberates, and more often, this is accompanied by great weather conditions, marking the start of longer and sunny days.

Unfortunately, there is no historical significance attached to Mzansi’s celebration of Spring Day. We are a nation of jolly folk, and nothing gets us going more than warm weather.

We have some of the best beaches in the world, and spring offers us a great incentive to dust off our swimwear and hit the waves."

According to Britannica the spring season officially starts on Thursday, 22 September 2022.

This period is also known as the vernal equinox, a moment in the year when “the sun is exactly above the equator and day and night are of equal length.”

Nevertheless; Summerwood learners had a jolly time on 1 September.
