To foster feelings of friendship and camaraderie between people in the block, a “block day” was held the following morning after the Orientation Camp. Basically, Block Day involved a one-day trip to Sentosa for the KEVIIans in their respective blocks, after a morning of breakfast and mini-IBG.
Upon reaching Sentosa, teams were encouraged to play Captain’s Ball with various objects, such as a toilet roll, a banana, and a toy snake, all of which were consequently joyfully mangled and annihilated by the various teams as they vied for points with the other blocks.
Many others played tug of war, Frisbee or relaxed on the luxuriant golden sand as they played yet another round of icebreaker games.
Yet even more took advantage of the proximity of the beach and went to sing songs and play games while half immersed in the cool seawater.
Eventually, as night fell, the various blocks separated for dinner at various locations around Singapore, while people recalled the feelings, friendships, and experiences each had gone through, and the personal voyage each had made from the start of the orientation till its conclusion :)
