“This year we do have some po­tential athletes in the sub junior, junior and the intermediate grade as well.

“We were also pleased to have 200 plus students participating in the inter-house meet.

“We had our heats completed at our school grounds on Wednesday and finals at the stadium.

“I feel it is a great idea to have the finals conducted at the stadium as it allowed these athletes to get ex­posed to competing on the tracks.”

The school coaches have been working on their athletes who have qualified for the Triple N Zone where they face Adi Cakobau School. Nasinu Secondary School and Lelean Memorial School.
