Field Events and Athletics Meeting 2013


Field Events

Star College hosted its annual field events competition on 30 April 2013. Learners competed in their age divisions for javelin, shot put, discus,long-jump and tug-o-war. Athletes were keen and the events were very competitive. After a closely contested plethora of events, learners assembled for the tug-o-war. The tug-o-war proved to be the highlight of the day, with house-masters and mistresses screaming themselves hoarse while encouraging their respective athletes. At the end of the event the educators seemed more out-of-breath than the competitors themselves. All in all, the field events day proved to be a rousing success. Learners competed fiercely amidst the hysterical cheering of educators and learners alike. The atmosphere created by healthy competition, wonderful music and delicious food was enjoyed by one and all. We would like to congratulate all the athletes who participated and thank all our learners for co-operating to produce an enjoyable and memorable field events day.

Athletics Meeting 2013

The Star College Annual Athletics Meeting took place on the 2nd May 2013 at the Kings Learners competed in a variety of track events in their respective age divisions. The learners were excited from the very start when the athletes marched past to the melody of ‘Chariots of Fire’. Mascots proudly displayed their house banners while the athletes geared themselves up for serious competition.

As expected the 100 and 200m events proved extremely exciting. Most of the races were extremely close, with hardly a nose separating the winning athlete from the boy who finished second.

The 100m relay also proved to be a crowd pleaser. The fastest athletes in the school faced off against each other and the result was an adrenaline fuelled event that had the spectators on their feet the whole time. The teachers race also proved to be a crowd favorite with some of the learner’s fathers joining in to add to the excitement.

The dance-competition at the break also drew many competitiors and it was obvious that our boys can move in other ways except straight down a race track!

Unfortunately there could only be one winning house but we wish to thank and congratulate all  our athletes who made the Star College Athletics Meeting a success.

A special thank you to all our educators who helped with maintaining discipline and organizing the various events and to Mr.R.Pillai for co-ordinating the event.

We look forward to seeing you there next year!
