The NAPSO sport weekend
12 June 2019 | Education
The event was hosted by the Dolphin Private School at the Jan Wilken Stadium, Walvis Bay. On Wednesday, the 29th of June 2019, the chess and tennis took place, whereby many students from different private schools participated. To add to that, a ‘sokkie’ dance was held that evening. Many students had a marvellous time and” let it all out” on the dance floor. Early Thursday morning the main event took place. We started off with the opening, where all the schools and their mascots were welcomed by the organizers. What is more, there was a mascot dance-off challenge and it was hilarious. Moreover, the netball and rugby players from all age groups played on that same day. The younglings had a blast with the rugby and netball games and they put in a lot of effort by performing wonderfully. The netball and rugby games continued on Friday. During the day delightful snacks, meals and beverages were sold that kept us refreshed and energised during the day. Other than that, the stadium was flooded by all the sport members and supporters. Additionally, our mascot ‘ Fa-Mielie Meerkat’ from Berg-Op Academy, supported the school with all the activities taking place during the day. Also, during the day the learners were busy playing rugby and netball games. The next day, the last rugby and netball matches took place. The players were high spirits, had good sportsmanship and played to the best of their abilities. Last but not least, as the sports ended during the afternoon, everyone helped to clean up making sure to leave the premises very clean.
The NAPSO sport weekend was exhausting but it was fun and exciting for everyone at the same time. At the end of the day the aim was not about winning or losing, instead it was mainly about the engagement of children in sports!
