Interhouse athletics

Stella, Alberdeen and Nassau were the sport houses that competed against each other at Parel Vallei High School in Somerset West recently.

Records were broken, and the day even saw staff participating in a race or two. House Stella was the overall winner of the athletics trophy, with 956 points, with Nassau in second place with 874 points, and Aberdeen third with 866 points. House Aberdeen had the most “gees” and won the spirit cup.
