The competition, which is designed to foster a sense of community and school spirit, was closely contested and generated a lot of excitement among students and parents.
The week concluded with an awards ceremony, where medals and trophies were presented to the winners of the various events and competitions. The school's principal, who also attended the ceremony, praised the students for their hard work, dedication, and sportsmanship, adding that the event would not have been possible without the support of the school's staff, coaches, and volunteers.
The school's Athletic Director, who organized the event, was also pleased with the outcome of the event, saying, "Sports week is an opportunity for our students to showcase their skills, talent and passion for sports.
