WHILE most schools are using their inter-house competitions to strengthen their teams for the zone meet, Sacred Heart College of Suva wants to use this as school bonding tool.

Eliasere Ratunaulu, the principal of Sacred Heart College, said results and achievements are a secondary need for them as their inter-house competition concluded at ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

"One thing we are trying to do is nurture school spirit," he said.

"Looking at the sports uniform today (yesterday) all are the same colours. That is the first thing we are trying to achieve here. The school spirit, students getting to know others as it is a large school of 600 students and then the third is zone and competitions."

The principal confirmed their participation in the zone meet and added that they hoped for the best.

"We let the bigger schools to do (medal targets) and we will participate and hope for the best outcomes," he said.

Young junior grade high jump athlete Tavite Waqaliti who considers Pacific sprint king, Banuve Tabaukaucoro as his idol said sports icon was pleased with his outing yesterday.

"The competition was good and it was competitive.

"I consider Banuve Tabakaucoro as my icon, although he does not take part in high jump but he is a good athlete.

"I want to become like him and will now focus on the zone meet," he said.

Waqaliti, 14, claimed second place in the high jump event yesterday.

The overall winner of the 2018 inter house zone will be announced today at the school.
