Athletics Interschools 2019

14 February was not just a day filled with love and roses, but the day of our magnificent interschools at Milnerton High School.

We competed against Milnerton, Edgemead and Bosmansdam High School. The day started off bright and early with our and Milnerton’s war cries and straight after that the games began!
