“Wynberg Bulala”

On the 25th of February 2015, Wynberg Girls’ High School participated in the annual and much anticipated A league Newlands Swimming Gala. It is customary for each school to gather a huge amount of support for an evening of energetic chanting alongside our Wynberg brothers, and this year was no exception.

We began the evening with all Wynberg girls meeting outside Food Lovers Market, receiving gold paint for their faces and ribbons for their hair. From there we marched to the Newlands pools, our excitement building.

Our girls swam as though they were made for water, delighting not only their coaches but the crowd as well. The continuous chanting of familiar school cheers coupled with the methodical beating of the Wynberg Boys’ High School’s drum, created a mesmerizing sound and an even more mesmerizing atmosphere.

Seeing our girls with their painted faces, hearing the cheers and, of course, watching Wynberg excel in the pool made for an unmissable evening which everyone who attended will remember.
