Robert Sobukwe House

Robert Sobukwe House Report 1 2018

Introduction

The year started with a Hall leadership training workshop attended by the Hall Comm. At the workshop the Hall vision was spelt out hinged on the following pillars:

  1. Unity and Ubuntu in the Hall
  2. Academic Excellency
  3. Community Engagement
  4. Residence as Academic Spaces

In line with these pillars we tailor made our vision to tie into and contribute towards the vision of the hall.

We also had a combined dinner of the Hall leadership at Rat and Parrot, see pictures below.

O-Week

Keeping in mind the pillars of the vision of the hall we put together the orientation program with activities aimed at enhancing unity in the house. In particular, these included sporting and cultural activities. The team-work shown by the house leadership was par excellence. The commitment exhibited by the first years was second to none. This brought results in that the house won the RU jamming prize. See pictures below

Academic Talk

To encourage academic excellency we invited a speaker to come and speak about study techniques, time management and general career guidance. The talk was well attended and it was very informative. Ms Thina Maqubela gave superb talk. See photos below

Ping Pong table

One member of the house committee donated a ping pong table that and the guys enjoy socializing while playing the table tennis.

House Braai

The house had a braai on the 10th of March and the guys loved playing games on the lawns and the braai meat. See pictures below
