Early on Saturday morning, 25 January excited scholars came together at the Piet Retief Interhouse Primary School’s athletics field to compete against each other.
The interhouse cheerleaders of each team were beautifully dressed and they had the crowd on their feet in no time; singing, dancing and cheering.
The trophy winners of the day were:
- Best middle distance athletes – Carl-Hein Creydt (boy) and Mia Potgieter (girl)
- Best field athletes – Carl-Hein Creydt (boy) and Tshepiso Mokoena (girl)
- Best track athlete – Phila Mathe (boy) and Lakeisha Marais (girl)
- Victor Ludorum – Carl-Hein Creydt
- Victrix Ludorum – Lakeisha Marais
Congratulations to these athletes, as well as all the medal winners of the day!
A special part of the day was when grade R-learners of Rinkel-Krinkel, Elfieland and Busy Bees had their chance to run. The children were excited to exhibit their running talents in front of the crowd and their parents. Each of these pre-schoolers received a medal for their excellent effort.
Thank you to every teacher and parent who ensured the success of the event and went out of their way to make this athletics meeting a roaring success.
