In the soft morning light of Friday, 4 August, Union Preparatory School, Graaff-Reinet hosted its time-honored Interschools’ Assembly.
A multitude of guests filled the school’s dome to participate in this extraordinary event that overflowed with 𝙩𝙤𝙪𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙢𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙨.
From the grand entrance of the high school’s 1st rugby and hockey teams, to the ceremonial presentation of the scarves, the heartfelt address delivered by Mrs. Chanzelle Heunis-Jones, and the inspiring words from Caitrin Spence and AJ Victor, Union High School’s Head Prefects, each moment was a testament to why this event is eagerly awaited every year.
The speeches by 1st team captains, Brigetté Oelofsen and Ryan Jenneke, along with the spirited war cries from the younger teams, added to the excitement.
A 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 was undoubtedly Mr. Gerrar Maya’s performance of ‘Union’s Call’, which stirred the emotions of all present, creating an unforgettable “goosebumps” experience.
