We kick off every year with our Inter House event during which our mass participation propagates. The teams put in a lot of effort and the learners support their friends with dedication. The two teams compete not only on the athletics field against each other, but also on the pavilion to determine who has the most spirit. The conductors make an effort with their teams and even their arrival is well planned. It’s a wonderful day full of fun and team spirit – truly a day to look forward to. The track items include short distances, hurdles and long distances. Field items are high jump, long jump, triple jump, shot put, discus and javelin.
The annual Inter High takes place in Potchefstroom where all our top athletes participate. In preparation for this, we have two friendly athletics events to make absolutely sure that the athletes are well prepared for this annual event.
The singing team rehearses for weeks in advance as we are a school to beat on the pavilion. The singers are well disciplined and well prepared for this day as we are strong competitors and serious participants in this competition.
After the Inter High, a selected group of athletes will take part in the Cluster Meeting to qualify for the district championships, from where they will then participate in the Gauteng and South African championships.
