Carpe Diem Academy celebrated our 20 th birthday on 4 September 2021 at our very first Carpie Fees.
The day was filled with fun, laughter, and lots of yummy eats. Our day kicked off with the Kaskar
Each class dressed and decorate their kaskar to a movie theme, including Harry Potter,
101 Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland and Avengers. Hard work followed as the learners ran laps in
the street to be crowned as the winners. Teachers, old students and parents jumped in to help.
Gr 11E and Gr 9 tied as the winners of the most laps while Gr 10 E won the prize for the best
dressed as Harry Potter.
After the Kaskar, kids rode on a mechanical bull, wrestled in sumo suits and took turns trying to dunk
each other, their teachers and even Mr Jacques. Although a lot of cheating took place, Mr Jacques,
Ms Chante and Ms Monique ended up soaking wet.
While the fun continued, delicious hot dogs, pregos and hambugers were sold, as well as brownies,
fudge and other treats made by the school. The colour run was the highlight of the day, no one went
away without streaks and spots of pink, blue and purple.
The beer tent was extremely popular as the live music filled the air. The day ended off with the
voices of Onike and Van Wyk Brand entertaining the crowd with 80’s and Golden Oldies.
We want to thank everyone who joined us on this special day, and those who sponsored items and
donated their time.
We look forward to next year and hope to see you here!
