Our aim is to always do well, we want to make sure that come the day we’ve selected the best and we have prepared them the best we can: Salacakau

Marist Brothers High School (MBHS) inter-house athletics competition was held at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Acting Principal Ben Salacakau, who joined MBHS this year, said they have talented athletes.

“A lot of the students are new and I am new as well, so I am not relying on what happens at the inter-house to judge on our talent for the competitions ahead,” Salacakau said.

“We intend to field athletes for all events because we want to allow students to recognise their true potential and also expose some athletes to sports they may not have participated in.

“Our aim is to always do well, we want to make sure that come the day we’ve selected the best and we have prepared them the best we can.

“It is important that they go out, compete and come back with some confidence. If we prepare them well, they will go out there and do their best and come back knowing they have tried.

“But if we don’t prepare well they will come back with a lot more questions than answers and we don’t want that.”

Salacakau said athletes cannot afford to think they were good this early in the season.

“When we had the Shop N Save Grand Prix last week that was my first chance to see who we have and the amount of potential we have.”
