THIRD year students of Embury Institute for Higher Education recently transformed the Addington Primary School field into Candy Land, a place of adventure and fun.

The annual fun day was hosted and organised by the third year Foundation Phase students as part of their Physical Education and Sports (PES) module and was a day filled with laughter, fun and of course sweets.

The day started early with a healthy fruit breakfast for the Grade 3s, followed by some enthusiastic war cries, which invigorated learners and students alike and announced the start of the fun and games.

The day was more than just about having fun and winning; it was also about teaching and developing the learners’ skills as well as emphasising participation, and encouraging a lifelong love for physical activity.

The game stations included an obstacle course, bowling, dress up relay and the ever-popular cupcake decorating competition and subsequent cupcake eating. The learners then entertained the Embury students by displaying their impressive dance moves, followed by a small prize giving where each learner received a medal, goodie bag and a well-deserved lunch.

The students extended their thanks to the sponsors who helped make the day a success. Thanks went to GM Parekh, Laven Pillay, Maryam Essack, Amina Bayat, Rubina Essa, Muhammed Shafee, Aneesa Ahmed, Hoseena Moolla, Eva and Boya Pillay, Suresh Ramsaroop, and Clem Hennessy for doing the videography, Resme Lutchmon, Dalton Builders, Linen House, Popini Trading, Home Sweet Home Dundee, Dunglen Bakery, Crescent Car Sales, Esse Organics, Noodle King, Goodlife Snackbar and ER24 Emergency Services.
