My visit to in the ghost house!
12 July 2019 | Education
Year after year the grade 10 Entrepreneurship day is the same old story. I called it BB, the big boring event! This year, however a surprise was waiting for us. The Learners Representative Council (LRCs) had taken the initiative and set up a Ghost House in one of the classes.
Two days before the Entrepreneurship day, marketing was done. Posters and pamphlets were on all the advertisement boards in school. The entrance fee was N$ 10-00. Out of curiosity I decided to visit the Ghost House. When I arrived at the classes, learners were standing in a row waiting for their turn to enter.
While waiting I heard the anxious, terrified screaming of the learners in the Ghost House. Then, I was not sure if I should enter or not, but I thought to myself that will I give it a try. We were five learners that entered the ghost house at a time. A very dark room, with loud scary music greeted us. Only the tour guide had a torch with a feint stream light.
Suddenly a ghost appeared in front of us and all of us started to scream. We moved forward and another ghost appeared throwing white substance on us. Constant screaming was all that you heard… Then somebody expectantly rose up out of a coffin…. and came to us. We started to run trying to find our way out of the ghost house. At last, wearing only one of my shoes, I reached the door. What an experience that I will never forget.
