Serrie is a cultural activity in which Sonop participates annually and largely contributes to Sonop’s tradition and history. It is a singing and dancing show that includes short pieces of dialogue, as well as breathtaking throws and acrobatic tricks. Any family member from first year to final years can participate in Sonop’s serrie.
From 2018, Sonop’s annual serrie will take place in Potchefstroom. We are transported by bus to the University of Potchefstroom where we then perform for each ladies’ residence in Potch. After the first show is completed, the whole serrie group moves to the next residence to entertain the ladies. After about 11 performances, the student gets the opportunity to explore the town and visit Potch.
Accommodation for the Sonop students is arranged to spend the night in Potch at a men’s residence. The next day there is a cricket and football match that takes place between Sonop and the Pukke men’s residence.
