At the end of last term, just before Easter, the first ‘inter-school’ athletics tournament took place since 2019. Our team of athletes travelled by school bus and then camped for three days to take part.
Nine schools participated, and we finished third. As all the other schools have twice our number of learners, we were very pleased with the result.
Four of our learners won their individual events: Rabecca Chirwa, under 13 girls, 100 metres; Samuel Sensenta, under 15 boys, 100 metres; Michael Musonda, under 17 boys, 100 metres; and Evans Chuma, under 17 boys, javelin. Rabecca and Samuel have now been selected to represent Chilanga district in the provincial championships.
At the same time, Tamika Simpamba, our talented girls footballer, won the district under 17 girls chess championship – so a huge ‘well done’ to her too.
Our five district ‘champions’ are in the photo above with Mr Hara our PE teacher.
