YELLOW House scooped 28 gold medals to win the Nausori High School inter-house yesterday.

A total of 100 students participated in this year's inter-house which featured 67 events.

Yellow House dethroned last year's champion Blue House, which came in second, while Red House was third and Green fourth.

Principal Praveen Chand said the school's aim was to win two medals at this year's Coke Games.

Chand said their focus would be mainly on the field events since the Coke Games were competitive.

"We don't take a huge number of athletes to the games but we can make a difference," said Chand.

Mereani Kanadroka is the school's top bet to win medals in the intermediate girl's javelin and shotput.

Kanadroka, who'll be featuring in her second year as an intermediate athlete, has matured and should be a threat to the other girls in the grade this year.

"We won two medals, one gold and one silver, at last year's Coke Games and we anticipate winning a similar number this year," said Chand

According to Chand, the school does not only believe in academic work but also developing the students holistically.

"Athletics helps build great teams and students take home fond memories of their school in the process."

He added that winning was not everything "but we give our best to the athletes".

Chand said that being a small school and getting the support from the parents was much appreciated.

"We are serious with our training as well. We are glad that the management supports us as well.

"The squad will be sent for training to sharpen their skills and improve on their performance. The school will be featuring high jump from next year."

Yellow House won the one-day copmpetition with 28 Gold, second was Blue with 23, Red was third with 19 and Green House was fourth with eight Gold.
