From next year Western schools will be able to use the facilities at Churchill Park in Lautoka for free when it comes to their athletics zone meet.

This was revealed yesterday by the Minister for Local Government, Urban Development, Housing and Environ­ment Parveen Bala, during his closing speech at the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics (FSSA) Ba Zone competition.

“Not to be biased, from next year on­wards Western schools can now use the Churchill Park for their athletics zone meet venue free-of-charge,” he said.

In the competition Xavier College took out the girls and boys titles.

In the girls, they claimed 17 gold med­als, 14 silvers and 10 bronze ahead of Ba Sangam College who collected 7 gold, 5 silvers and 6 bronze medals.

It was all Xavier in the boys as they collected 30 gold medals, 15 silvers and 12 bronze ahead of Khalsa College who managed 7 gold, 4 silvers and 8 bronze medals.

Xavier College head coach Seraia Mi­simisi said their success was because of the collective efforts by teachers, parents and students.

“I’m overwhelmed, we are grateful to our administrators, our dedicated ath­letes, coaches and parents for the team­work and support,” Misimisi said.

She said they’re looking forward to future competitions and would be aim­ing to finish in a better position com­pared to last year.
