A narrow victory at the Welcome Day 2021
In the morning, all apprentices and graduating apprentices gathered at the SensiAcademy, where a game gave them the chance to find out more about each other. All apprentices had brought with them an item that said something about them. One person at a time, they had to introduce themselves and then choose a different item from the box. The person whose item was chosen had to explain why they had brought that item and then introduce themselves. This continued until everyone had gotten a turn. Afterwards, a competition started in which mixed teams had to design a coat of arms. The prize for the group with the most beautiful coat of arms was two cakes for each team member’s next birthday. Lots were drawn to find out who would have to bake the cakes.
After lunch and the announcement of the winners, the apprentices played another game. They had an iPad with puzzles that they had to solve in the same groups. They got points for each correct answer, plus additional points for creative pictures. The group with the most points won. The prize for the top two finishers was a gift card for lunch. First and second place were very close. Only 500 points separated the two teams at the end – extremely close, considering that there were at least 1,000 points per solved task.
At the end of the day, there was a farewell drinks reception for the graduating apprentices. The seven apprentices who successfully completed their apprenticeships in the summer of 2021 received gifts and kind words from their junior apprentices and vocational trainers. We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks once again for passing the final apprenticeship examination!
