The School’s Director of Sports, Mr. Yakubu Abubakar, also said the Inter-House Sports competition is aimed at harmonizing academics and sports as he also quoted a popular adage which says “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
In a related development, the Principal of the school and Coordinator of sports, Mr Daniel Odobo said “Even before now, we always had sports as part of our curriculum because of its importance. So this is one of the biggest events that we carry out once in a year. We normally showcase it for parents to see how fit their kids are.
“Today, track and field events took place and of course we had other ones like tug of war with parents and children, Teachers and Parents and it was really nice. We also discovered new talents.”
