UKZN’s School of Engineering Gets Sporty!
It was a day of fun and games at the 2017 School of Engineering Sports Day, held at the Gate 10 Sports Grounds on 15 June. With all Engineering disciplines represented as well as staff from the College Office, it was quickly a case of game on!
To kick off the games and set the pace for the sporty challenges ahead, teams warmed up by jumping over cones. The Civil and Mechanical Engineers beamed blissfully when they took home the tug of war challenge, beating the School office. But the team of the day with their attitude, vibe and competitive spirit were the the Chemical Engineers, who soon rolled into the lead, winning the second round of the games making them the leading team and overall winners.
Engineering Sports Day is a team-building initiative aimed at building camaraderie between the various Disciplines within the School. It proved to be an enjoyable and fun day with prizes being awarded to all who participated. Next year the challenge will be on!
