High School Piet Retief Interhouse athletics

On Saturday, 16 January the atmosphere at High School Piet Retief’s Interhouse athletics was filled with a deep sense of exhilaration as the spirit of the school was humbly brought to life by the colourful matric cheerleaders.

You’d think that the early initiation of the Interhouse athletics event might lead to a lack of motivation. This was not the case as everyone from participants to supporters to teachers were excited for the Interhouse athletics happenings. Silence broke free on the stands after a prayer was said at the start of the event. Thereafter, the matric cheer-squads entered luxuriously and did a great job at carrying the enthusiasm for the day over to the crowd.

You should enjoy all the achievements in life!
