Semi & Senior Week 2018

Posted on March 12, 2018

During this week we get to bond together as Semis and Seniors. Usually the events involve some the Men’s Residences, this year Semi/Senior week only focused on the members of the House. This week was introduced first in 2016 as a way to honour the Semis and Seniors of the House. The Semi and Senior Guardians both have to plan events for the Semis and Seniors of the house. This year the Semi/Senior week took place from the 05 March 2018 – 09 March 2018, the events that were planned involved a motivation day the Monday, a movie night the Tuesday, the Semi/Senior picnic the Wednesday, Burger special lunch the Thursday and a clubhouse social on Friday with Olienhout which was open to the whole House.

The motivational day’s purpose was to get the Semis and Seniors excited for the week ahead. They received a Chocolate with a message that motivates them for the week ahead. The movie night was meant only for the girls in the House, so that they could bond, we watched the movie “How to be Single”. The Semi/Senior picnic, is basically a special time for the semi’s and Seniors to bond and get know each other. This event took place in Groenkloof, at the pond whereby the EC prepared the décor and refreshments for the house members. The Burger special lunch happened as a substitute to the Braai and Punch Off that couldn’t happened due to the weather. We went to springboks to get the burger special. 

Semi/Senior week is a fun time for the Semis and Seniors of the House because this is one of the times when they get to spend time away from the First years of the House.
