Wynberg Boys’ Junior School is committed to offering opportunities so that all its pupils may pursue excellence in all aspects of education – academic, cultural, sporting and service.
The afternoon started with the Potjie teams gathering to show their culinary skills. Each team guarded their pots as if their life depended on it. The banter between teams left us in stitches as our judges sampled each pot to choose the winning team. Team “Holy Smoke” came out on top, with Team “Pot Masters” following in second place. A custom made WBJS Potjie Competition Floating Trophy was awarded to the winning team, together with custom aprons.
Excitement was in the air when the boys had to choose their 5-a-Side soccer teams (you would not believe the seriousness that came with it – after all, there were some great prizes to be won). Player of the day was awarded to Connor Fourie, winning himself an official match ball.
Just before the start of the much anticipated SA vs Wales Rugby match on the big screen, we chose the most enthusiastic rugby supporter (someone who had made a special effort to dress up and show his support.) This prize was awarded to Cael Lupke (Grade 3B), winning himself a SA rugby jersey.
Glow sticks, wands and swords could be seen hanging from most boys’ necks, arms and legs (they could probably be seen from the moon) as they lit up the night and stayed up late enjoying their night out with their friends and got to have some father and son time (without the girls).
The boys and their dads were awoken by the smell of frying bacon and eggs as they queued to collect their breakfast and hot chocolate in the hopes of gaining a little energy after a late night.
Before the boys had even left on the Sunday morning, we were being asked, “When is the next camp? Can’t we have another one next weekend?”
A very big THANK YOU to all the parents and boys who supported our last fundraiser for the year or offered their assistance to make the event a success. We look forward to a great 2019 with many more exciting events.
