The fest was on the 31st of February and was held at the school grounds, and happened directly after school. It was part of an initiative to welcome the grade 8’s to their high school experience. The fest started off with the LRC’s giving instructions to the learners. There was a set of activities set for the grade 8’s. The HOD of the LRC’s Mr S Urikhob was the coordinator of the fest and Mrs Sirakis the guardian of the LRC’s was doing all the dirty work alongside Eupha Lilongwe, behind closed doors to make the event possible. Francina Iipinge a learner in 8F said that “the part I enjoyed most was when some of the of the Duinesig LRC’s came out of the office with watermelons. It was meant for rubbing against someone’s face or clothing but the kids started throwing the watermelons at each other. I enjoyed it when I threw a watermelon at my class LRC’s and when Moses threw eggs and water at me and when we threw watermelons at each other”.

Laughter, excitement, thrill and shock filled the air, the learners were in awe of what was going to happen. All of a sudden the LRC’S threw the learners with water balloons which made the learners to propel into grabbing the pieces of watermelons and that’s when chaos erupted. The learners threw each other with eggs and all that could be seen was white faces because of the baking flour after that they had a break. Antonius Naieb a learner in 8G said that “I was nervous at first but then I saw my mates enjoying the event and decided to join in. The LRC’s were very fun and mischievous towards the grade 8’s.” The watermelon festival ended with the learners getting watermelons to eat and having to pick up the watermelon slices. “The watermelon festival was fun and exciting because we got to do something that we never did before like throwing each other watermelons, eggs, baking flour and water and it was the most exciting day of my school year,” said Emilly David in 8E.
