From Wikipedia: –

MTBS is an annual interschools athletics competition (the largest in South Africa) held between four high schools located in Bellville, Western Cape. The competition is famous for the cheerleading by participating schools. 

 

These schools are: D.F. Malan High School, Tygerberg High School, Bellville High School and Stellenberg High School

 

The highlight of the event is a 7-minute cheerleading performance by the pavilion of each school. This performance consists of a medley of songs during which the students effectively create a “human LCD screen” on the pavilion. This is achieved by them opening and closing their school blazer at unique pre-determined moments, with each student effectively functioning as a pixel and thus allowing images and animations to be displayed. Other parts of the school uniform (such as dresses and socks) may also be used, but no other props (such as cards) are allowed. 

The name is derived acronym from the names of the schools in that order. The first MTBS took place in 1994. This was the brainchild of the late Frans du Toit, a retired teacher from JG Meiring High School in Goodwood and a part time sports journalist.

 

Here are two more performances from the same school, DF Malan High School in Cape Town, South Africa.
