Have a holly, jolly Christmas!
7th December 2021
🎶 It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas 🎶… in boarding!
3rd March 2021
The boarding students had a lot of fun playing Twister on Friday night. There are some very supple and coordinated students in the house. Even some of the staff tried it, but with knees and ankles sounding like a bowl of Rice Crispies, that was soon stopped. After that, there was much screaming and shouting going on when the students had a water balloon fight.
On Saturday afternoon, there was a general knowledge quiz, and in the evening, the students had an outdoor activity of radio-controlled car racing. This happened on the grass area outside the boarding houses. Spectators encouraged the drivers through the course that was laid out, and prizes went to the winners.
On Sunday afternoon, students and staff enjoyed “vetkoek” and spicy mince as a snack. Vetkoek is a traditional South African snack that is fried bread dough filled with spicy mince. The students helped cook the mince and the vetkoek and got to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
A fun-filled weekend was had by all.

Weekend Boarding Activities
4th September 2020
Last weekend was full of fun and excitement, Students participated in a game of “The Floor is Lava”. An obstacle course was made in the common room for students to participate in, delicately stepping onto the course and avoiding the floor at all cost! Additionally, Chef Sara invited our students into the Cafeteria to learn how to cook some delicious pizzas with a wide selection of toppings to choose from.
The activities never end at Raffles American School Boarding!
