TERI kawai was the motto that drove Rewa House to win the Queen Victoria School interhouse competition at the Nukuvuto ground in Matavatucou over the weekend.

The Rewa House boys' yellow flags flew high this year after winning 18 gold medals, seven silver and six bronze.

Tovata House was favourite to walk away as victors. This was after they had stormed to command proceedings on day one with a seven-gold lead but Rewa hauled them in on day two to come out on top.

Tovata finished as first runner-up with eight gold medals, 12 silver and 11 bronze.

Third placed Verata won seven gold, nine silver and 17 bronze while Bau bagged six gold, 11 silver and five bronze medals.

Emori Tuisese Junior led Rewa's campaign winning the junior boys 100 metres event.

Schools meet manager Irivi Draunidalo said they hoped to improve their distances, times, and heights to do well at the Tailevu Zone and the Coca-Cola Games.

QVS finally returned its interhouse competition to the famous Nukuvuto ground. The last sports day was held there in 2006.

Meanwhile, a further up the road at another Tailevu boarding school, Ma'afu house won the Ratu Kadavulevu school inter-house last Friday.

RKS and QVS have over the years provided strong competition at the two-day Coca-Cola Games held at the end of the first term.
