Jasper Williams High School yesterday told the media that they could only take pictures at Churchill Park. But they would not be allowed to interview the athletes during the inter-house competition.

Jasper Williams High team manager Kelera Kalou said the school decided to place a limited coverage as they prepare for the 2018 Coca Cola Games in April.

“We decided in a meeting that there will be a media ban,” she said.

“We cannot comment on our preparation towards the Coca-Cola Games.”

“We can allow the media to take pictures but we will not provide the names of the students participating.

“The overall results of the inter- house competition will not be revealed as well.”

Lautoka Secondary Schools Athletics president Jitendra Narayan said the coverage is limited to the media and each school has their own policy.

“It is up to their various school committees and we can’t comment further on this,” he said.

Jasper Williams won the overall girls title in 2015-2016.
