QVS’s zone target

QUEEN Victoria School is confident of a good outing in the 2018 Tailevu Zone and the Coca-Cola Games this year.

Assistant principal and manager Dan Domoni said they would be concentrating on discipline on and off the field.

“After the Tropical Cyclone Winston two years ago we thought we will have an easy transition from 2016 to 2017 and when we actually had our competition we found out that we were way out of the mark,” he said.

“On top of that all our gold medallists last year are no longer with us as they have moved on to tertiary level as our strength laid in the senior grade last year.

“This year we’re focusing on our young athletes so hopefully we will compete well in the sub and junior grade and of course we have to start from the grassroots level and continue to move our way up.”

Domoni said a three-year development plan was in place for the athletes.

“The other resource was to get athletes out of QVS which is a short-term solution but on another hand it won’t help these athletes because they haven’t gone through the traditions of this school.

“We’re gauging ourselves now by looking at the strength of each individual athlete’s performance.”

He said their performance had improved compared with last year’s performance in terms of their physical fitness and with the aim to be one of the top five schools in the Coca-Cola Games.

“We may be a powerhouse in rugby but realistically we’re not in athletics so we really have to work hard on that.”

Defending inter-house champion Bau retained their title while Tovata came in second, Rewa third and Verata in fourth position.
