AS students around the country make final preparations for the world's biggest secondary schools athletics meet this weekend, young men at Saint John's College in Cawaci, Ovalau have begun honing their cheering and chanting skills.

Although the Levuka school has never tasted glory at the Fiji Finals, the enthusiasm and roar of the students during cheering practice was an indicator of how passionate they are.

"We are proud of our cheer squad just as much as we are proud of our athletes," said Principal Father Ekuasi.

"We may not have a big team when compared to other dominant schools but we are going to give it our best shot."

St John's scooped the Ovalau Zone held in March with an overall tally of 43 gold, 31 silver and 38 bronze medals winning both the boys and girls divisions.
