KEMPTHORNE House came out victorious at the Holy Trinity Anglican School inter-house competition held yesterday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

The team grabbed 17 gold, 10 silver and 13 bronze medals.

Twitchell House bagged 21 gold, 19 silver and 13 bronze medals.

In third place was Vockler House with 11 gold, 9 silver and 12 bronze medals and in fourth place was Holland House with 18 gold, 20 silver and 10 bronze medals.

About 400 students were part of the school athletics event with four houses vying for the final prize.

Meet manager Shiro Mani said the development of athletics and participation in athletics for the students of Holy Trinity had increased by the years after establishing athletics three years ago.

“This is our third year running for athletics in this school and we have always had major drawbacks in competing for athletics because we don’t have much of a ground to compete on, so we have to come here to the stadium. For the love of sports and for our students we have kept this athletics competition running,” said Mani.

The school won three medals in the last Suva zone meet and hopes to grab more for this year.

“We have a lot of talent in the school and this all has been discovered after starting athletics in the school.

Most of our students are energetic and they just train from home and do their own training so they can excel in their events,” said Mani.

The school’s inter-house event ended yesterday.
