What you should have learned in school: staying up to date with your health checks

SAVANNAH PLASKITT

Every week Perdeby takes a look at something you should have learned at school to assist you in day-to-day life. This week, we take a look at which health checks you should be regularly getting and how to go about getting checked.

Every week Perdeby sends its journalists to experience something out of their comfort zone. This time Perdeby played dodgeball.

TeamPerdebySport once again stepped out of the comfort of our office to take part in the Zando Tshwane 10s Sports Festival as part of one of many teams competing in the dodgeball tournament. The event was spread over two days (Friday 25 August and Saturday 26 August), starting with the opening rounds in the later part of day one and concluding with the semi-finals and finals at the end of day two. Pretoria’s very own Harlequins Rugby Club played host to the event with live entertainment, giveaways and food stalls creating an electric atmosphere from the get-go.

Every week Perdeby publishes an experience piece, but today were publishing something extra. Since applications for Perdeby are open this week, we decided to share an experience of working at Perdeby.
