The headmaster of the senior high school, Bright Saluma, encouraged the children to emulate the discipline sports offers.
“They have had too much academic work and so we created this opportunity to entertain themselves. We believe in a sound mind resides in a sound body.”
“We want to create a healthy sporting rivalry between the schools under the Seven Great family and I know our aim has been achieved despite our inability to have a bigger field for training and competitions.”
This year’s event marks the 28th edition and it brought together five divisional schools competing for laurels.
