Here at BHC, we take Academics very seriously, but as we all know, life is about balance. So once a term we schedule a social event. The purpose of this is to not only get our students to put down their pencils and shut down their computers, but also get out, breathe in some fresh air and just get to know their peers a little better.
The first official social event for the year is our Boeresport Day – a long standing tradition that is always a lot of fun and this year was no exception.
Students had to team up in groups of 6 and dress-up according to a unique theme of their choosing. This year “80s gym” seemed to be quite a popular theme as one of our 3rd year teams pitched up as “Body Beat” and our Décor students came dressed up as the “Jane Fonda’s”. Some of the other original themes included Error 404 and the Unicorns.
The day started with a very competitive game of “tug of war” to get the adrenaline going. Next was the 2-man-wheelbarrow race, sack race and lastly, the plank race. Team spirits were high and those who did not participate, made up for it with loud cheers from the side-line.
Our second years did another amazing job at arranging food and drinks to sell at the event. The profits of these sales will contribute to the end of year dance.
At the end of the day, there could be only one overall winner, and this year that team was the “Body Beats”. Each year we also acknowledge the best team for their unique theme and effort with dressing up and this year that award went to the “Unicorns”.
Well done to all the teams that participated and thank you to everyone that attended…we look forward to the socials to come!
