Tribute to Southern Mail

Naseerudi Harneker, principal Crescent Primary School

On Southern Mail’s 30th birthday, here follows a tribute

So much good does this newspaper contribute

Positively striving to uplifting community

Its impact being felt throughout the broader society

Every Wednesday comes the Southern Mail

Delivered door-to-door without fail

Nothing escapes this newspaper to report

On politics, education, entertainment and sport

And features such as “What’s On”, “Off My Trolley” and News

Even on consumer issues and Book Reviews

Giving a voice to readers through them writing many a letter

Hoping it will lead to things becoming much better

Southern Mail makes for a good read

Inspiring us to do so many a good deed

Reading Southern Mail keeps you in the know

Not scared to publish what’s going on is a definite no-no

On this momentous occasion of Southern Mail’s 30th Birthday

Heartiest Congratulations we all say!

And may you have many more successes along the way!
