Dundee High’s leaders start 2017 with a bang
In the early morning of Wednesday, 4 January 2017, the prefects left for a camp at Clubventure, Ballito. After a long drive, the prefects immediately jumped into activities where they were divided into four teams and had to come up with names for the different teams. They were The Danger Red Squad, The Geel Ngungubanes, The Blue Shot Squad and The Royal Greens.
Die prefekte het die eerste aand ‘n diep gesprek gehad oor hoe om die skool se tradisies terug te bring en die Graad 8 leerders te leer van die skool se geskiedenis. Die prefekte het uitgewys dat dit belangrik is om die geskiedenis van die skool te ken en verskeie tradisies terug te bring of te begin sodat leerders net meer trots daarop kan wees om deel te wees van Hoërskool Dundee.
The second day the prefects started off with an Amazing Race where they had to complete 15 challenges at 15 different stages. One such challenge was eating either a cricket, an earthworm, a cockroach or some other insect. After the Amazing Race the teams had to do an obstacle course where they had to climb over net walls, walk over logs, crawl under wooden beams, etc. Each team needed to complete the challenge as fast as they could and they had to help each other complete it.
Na ‘n lekker middagete het meeste van die prefekte saam met Mnr en Mev Visser die 1,5km zipline toer gaan doen waar daar 5 lyne is en die laaste lyn die “parazip” genoem word. Die “parazip” bestaan uit ‘n lyn wat ‘n skerp gradiënt af het en elke persoon het ‘n valskerm aan sodat jy nie te vinnig afgaan nie. ‘n Mens kan tot 90km/h by die lyn afgaan.
The last day the prefects were up at dawn to go to the beach and look at the waves and experience the beauty of the ocean. They had a devotional and a prayer and then went back to the campsite where they received medals and awards for their participation. Thank you to Mr Vogel and his wife who took some time off to take the prefects to Ballito and to Clubventure for always letting us have our annual prefect camp with them. We really enjoy it every time.
