Four secondary schools selected to take part in the 2016 schools sports carnival are gearing preparations for the sports event scheduled for May 20.
They are King George Sixth, St Josephs Tenaru, Betikama and Selwyn College.
Host, King George Sixth School has been training with the help of the Athletics Solomon, an advantage for them according to the school’s Deputy Principal Johnny Tasa.
Tasa said having had Athletics Solomon helping out and a running track to train on gives them a big advantage for winning this upcoming sports event.
Strong competitors Selwyn College is also gearing up preparations and the hunt for potential athletes is currently underway.
The Internal Inter-divisional battle between Masi, Noabu, Tahula and Kirio is fierce as each seeks to dominate the Selco squad according to a statement on the Selwyn School’s facebook page.
“We are mindful of the legacy that needs to be upheld and we intend to do us all proud.”
Selwyn just like the other three schools has a long history of being one of the top contenders when it comes to Sports events such as this.
The schools’ sports carnival is being organized by Athletics Solomon to revive the sports carnival which used to be an annual event way back in the 90s.
Tenaru and Betikama are also gearing up preparations as time grows near.
The sports carnival will include mainly athletics and tracks events.
