ReActive8 – End of year party

ReActive8 – End of year party (25th June 2016)


As the sun shied away behind the clouds in the early hours of Sunday, more than twenty volunteers set to task setting up the marquee, organising the games equipment, firing up the jikos and marking lanes, all in preparation for the Year end party where we had a turnout of nearly 250 people!

OAUKNW_YearEndParty(7)Everyone enjoyed the sumptuous salad, chips, garlic bread, bbq corn, jiko pizzas and refreshing watermelon!

This was followed by the games, played simultaneously in 3 different zones-
dodgeball, obstacle relay and treasure hunt.

In the end, parents and kids alike were either soaking wet or caked in flour but what an amazing time we all had! The games were finished off with the Tug of War.

This was followed by the presentation and prize giving. And much to everyone’s delight, we had a surprise finale of ice cream.

What a fun-packed and exciting day it was, full of high spirits and smiling faces!

CategoryWinning House Color

The house colour games are thoroughly enjoyed by the children every month. This year the BLUE Cheetahs took the overall lead. In addition, the following awards were received by the colour teams:

Yes, it does appear as though the Green Leopards should have walked away with the overall trophy this year too but, the Blue Cheetahs attendance pushed them into first place.
