FLAT OUT: Southern Institute of Technology student Johny Johnson gets bucked off the Waikiwi Tavern mechanical bull during his wild ride.

Southern Institute of Technology student Johny Johnson couldn't keep his seat on the Waikiwi Tavern mechanical bull during his wild ride on the last day of SIT Re-Orientation Week yesterday.

The week celebrates students' return to classes for semester two. Students had the chance to ride Brutus the bull, sumo wrestle, enjoy a free barbecue and listen to music by the Bachelor of Music bands.

There were free giveaways, including movie tickets to students who could stay on the bull.

The Red Frogs, a volunteer group which supports students, were there making sure students were safe and even popped in to some flats during the week to make pancakes.
