Sintecia Fortuin, a second-year education student, toldPerdeby that she did not know about the event. “We, the students on external campuses, are not informed of the events by the SRC.” She added that she feels like the sport day is a disappointment.
Former SRC member with the student sport portfolio Xabiso Sicwedu told Perdeby that the SRC has decided to make the day a memorable one for students by changing it and trying something different. “There will be five-a-side soccer matches, rugby as well as jumping castles. We are trying to remind students of their younger days and of all the fun they used to have,” said Sicwedu. He told Perdeby that there will also be a local DJ performing.
Entrance to the event is free to UP students who present a valid student card. Buses will be available to transport students to the Rag Farm.
