Bringing the field into full colour


Stanford Lake College’s interhouse athletics day was held under a scorching Haenertsburg sun on Tuesday, January 22. The learners came together to compete, chant, sing and dance for their houses.

Many boldly took on the challenge of representing their house in a discipline that is unfamiliar to them, all in the name of their team.

The new grade 8’s threw themselves into the day’s festivities and it is great to see some rising stars in our midst.

The trophy winners were as follows:

Vavasour Cup for Boys Open 1500m: David Pullinger
McGaffin Trust Trophy for the Top Sprinter: Ethan Jones
McGaffin Trust Relay Trophy: Orvis
Cheerio Trust Trophy – Best Senior Middle Distance Runner: Emma Melville
