Mondale crash victims remembered
Family and friends gathered to remember the three matriculants killed in a car accident.
CAPE TOWN - A memorial service was held at Mondale High School on Wednesday to honour the three matriculants killed in a car accident last weekend.
Parents, teachers and classmates paid a moving tribute to the trio, who died when their vehicle collided with a Golden Arrow bus near Strandfontein.
The school hall was packed with hundreds of people, whose lives had been touched by Kelly Ford, Leanne Swayle and Keenan Smith.
In their memory, three white candles were placed on the stage in front of the hall.
There was a large bouquet of purple, pink and yellow flowers, with cards of condolences nearby.
The three were described as remarkable learners.
While classmates remembered Leanne and Kelly as the school's two fashionistas, they remembered Keenan as the lookalike of the well-known character from the Twilight movie saga, Jacob Black.
Some believe their lives were cut short, but many grade 12 classmates say their memories will live on.
