Our Riverlites had a blast playing the modified version of Bocce Ball with their classmates. 

 
 
 
 
 
Students had to keep the paper ball in the air for as long as possible for this game. Recycled paper was used to create the ‘Sepak Takraw ball’.
 
 
 
Students were able to test their flexibility and endurance by playing Limbo Rock in the canteen.
