Team Building: Club Committees

BY Lisakhanya Daniels

Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." --Andrew Carnegie
Team Building is an event held annually at Riebeek College. This year it was held on 17 January. It gives attendees the opportunity to learn more about effective decision-making, communication, the importance of individual commitment to a group effort and, in the words of Ken Blanchard, helps attendees understand that "None of us is as smart as all of us." The Team Building event teaches these important life lessons through a series of games and an educational and otivational speech given at the end of the event by Mrs Gerber. After a long day of fun and games and learning important life skills, Cultural Board claimed 3rd position, SCA second position and in 1st position was Alpha Leo. The award for best spirit went to Choir committee.
The event got off to a great start as girls were very excited about Team Building. Teams were dressed in different, vibrant, "Alice in Wonderland" inspired costumes; eager for the event to start. Teams competed against each other in a series of games (Mad Hatter human knot, tea cup dash relay, cat got your tail, caterpillar hula hoop race) to claim first position. Erin Kettledas said, "I had so much fun, some great laughs and learned so much about ways to work with a team."
A big thank you to Mrs Gerber, Miss Tetani, Miss Klassen (Old Girl and a student teacher of last year who stepped in to help supervise), Miss Klaas and Miss Mxoli for taking time out of their schedules to help out at Team Building. In addition, thank you so much to New Old Girls of the Cultural Board of 2019: Amy Schambril, Monique Balie, Casey Els, Amee Exford and Nuraan Kasmed who came to assist co-ordinate the event. It was also very special that Grade 8s and 9s came to support and helped with a clean-up. And we loved seeing a few Old Girls who came to sister their younger sisters at this memory making event! On hehalf of Cultural Board, Chaneal Labercensie co-ordinated and ran the event and she is commended on her excellent leadership skills.
