#Festival was a big success

20 October 2017 | Youth

There’s so much truth in the saying that what’s found in the west is best. At the first ever HashTag (#) festival one team stood out, one team reigned supreme. The Coastal Dolphins is a team that should not be messed with. Hailing from the country’s most known coast, this is a team that consists of learners from four different schools at the coast. The schools are De Duine Secondary School, Namib High School, Westside High School and Swakopmund Secondary School. These learners came together and participated in different types of sports activities at SKW sports grounds in our capital city, Windhoek. Namibia Media Holdings [NMH] was the hosts of the first ever #Festival. Schools from all over the country participated in this event. The 8th of September was the official opening and the next day the community games commence. The Coastal Dolphins were the overall champions at this historical event. The learners participated in rugby, hockey, netball, soccer, beach volleyball, chess, 40 m dash, tennis, cheerleading and a quick quiz. The Coastal Dolphins won the platinum plate in the high 5 girls hockey, gold in the high 5 soccer, the platinum plate in the fast 5 netball, bronze in the beach volleyball, bronze 40 m dash, silver and the platinum plate in chess and bronze in the cheerleading challenge. “Dolphins is not only a team, but we have become a big family over a very short period,” these were the words of Cerano Saunderson one of the team members of the Coastal Dolphins from De Duine Secondary School. The Coastal Dolphins would not have made it that far without their sponsor, Paratus. They made it possible for the team to become the overall winners. The community games weren’t all, learners had the opportunity to attend a career fair, this specific exposure will enable learners to make a more informed decision about their future. Apart for the afore-mentioned activities the teams also had some time to enjoy some social competitions like the Mss High School pageant, a choir competition and a cooking competition. Saturday night the 9th of September people enjoyed a great evening at the Musical festival. The popular band Adam entertained the crowds with a memorable and captivating show. Many learners in attendance said that this was one of the greatest things they had ever experienced and that they won’t exchange it for anything. NMH is trying to make the #Festival a yearly event, because this event was a success. All in all this event wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the learners, they made this event an enormous success.
