Yellow House yesterday emerged winners of the Ndow’s Comprehensive Senior, Junior and Junior Annex inter-house joint competition with 541 points.

The athletes’ race which involved four houses - yellow, green, blue and red - was held at the Serrekunda West Mini Stadium.

Green house emerged second with 529 points, Red house third with 483 points and Blue fourth with 482 points.

In the same development, Isatou Farage was named the best female athlete in the competition.

The occasion was graced by the school proprietress, Dr Harriet Margaret Ndow, and chairperson of the board Mr Pheophilus George among other dignitaries.

In an interview with The Point during the hits, the principal co-coordinator, Peter Bekoe Koranteng, described the competition as historic, saying it was the first time Ndow’s Comprehensive Senior, Junior and Junior Comprehensive Annex School came together as one school to compete in under various athletic houses, which included red, blue, yellow and green houses.

He also said he had visited the training grounds during the week hits to assess the preparation and the competition was fruitful.

The competition, he noted,was slated earlier to ensure Grade 12 focused more on their books in preparation for the West African Senior Secondary Schools Examinations, which is due to commence soon.

He also said that after the competition, results will be tabled, as they technically look forward to improving more in the future.

He further advised students to focus and maintain positive attitude in whatever they do with high sense of discipline.
