Sandton campus celebrates for special causes

Hotel School | 13 December 2013

The International Hotel School’s Sandton campus celebrated Halloween with all treats, no tricks! It’s the scariest time of year and everyone loves a good thrill over the Halloween period. There’s no better excuse to dress up, have a party and eat loads of sweet treats.

At the end of October, IHS Sandton Campus enjoyed their annual Halloween celebrations. There were so many awesome costumes worn around campus, it was such a treat to see and be a part of these spooky festivities.

We saw loads of fun and fabulous outfits – from Pinocchio to Superwoman, a Dexter wannabe (inspired by the TV character) and more! This year we decided that Halloween should not be solely about tricking – that we should focus on the treating. We also decided to tie this into helping someone in need...

IHS Sandton don’t trick, only treat this Halloween!

Hotdogs were on sale on the day of Halloween, and all those who dressed up were asked to give a R10 donation. We raised R2,000 that day which was to be donated to help a fellow student’s brother undergoing chemotherapy. Unfortunately, before the donation could be made the young man passed away.

The SRC will be keeping the funds for another worthy cause that arises and everyone at The International Hotel School sends heartfelt condolences to Lexie Cripps on the passing of her brother Marshall.

IHS Sandton staff “daRed” to run in red this Movember! Prostate cancer’s no joke, but that doesn’t mean that raising awareness around the disease can’t be fun. Etana’s fifth DAREdevil Run took place on Friday the 8th of November 2013.

A race that encourages men to wear red Speedos and run in support of prostate cancer, hundreds took to the streets of Joburg to “run for their balls”, along the 4.5km race route. On the day, IHS Sandton campus lecturer, Bradley Vienings, proudly donned a bright red speedo to highlight his support for this worthy cause:

As an active athlete, it was refreshing to attend such a unique and special event.  Men of all ages, fathers and their younger sons, came together to support a good cause. It was an opportunity for me to do something.

While there are always events for women’s awareness and breast cancer, there are seldom any for men to participate in. I look forward to doing it again next year!

To add to the festivities at our campus over November, a number of students and staff attempted to grow their mustaches for

DareDevil Johannesburg participants (L-R) Stephen Williamson, Bradley Vienings from IHS and three fellow participants at the run.

Movember, to do their bit to “change the face of men’s health” – and all funds that were raised went towards the Movember campaign.

If you missed Movember this year, make sure you get clued up on everything you need to know so you can participate in 2014 and help to raise awareness about prostate cancer:
