MOSSEL BAY NEWS - Friday, 7 February, when the Point High School raft competition took place at Santos Beach, was a typical Mossel Bay day, weather wise.
There were four seasons in one day. In the early morning a chilly wind kept teachers in jackets and parents unwilling to get out of their cars.
Of course, this did not keep the learners from wearing summer shorts and bathing suits.
In no time the cold air was warm, with vibrant excitement, as learners competed in the different activities: beautiful sand structures were created; sand flew everywhere as touchies rugby players tried to outmanoeuvre their opponents; tempers flared during highly competitive volley ball matches and muscles strained to get that rope to move just another inch during epic tug of war contests.
Beauty and brawn was put to the test in the Mr and Miss Raft Race and the Iron Man and Woman competitions respectively.
Unfortunately, after the learners had struggled against the wind and big waves during the first two raft races, Point High School principal Adolf Gouws cancelled the rest of the raft races to ensure the safety of our learners.
The fun and games continued, though, and as the day grew warmer children could enjoy a wonderful Mossel Bay beach day.
