Zonal athletics: first news of yesterday’s competition…

Friday, 31st January was a very important day. No, not Brexit, nor the football transfer window in the UK….but the first sports competition of the year for Pakati Secondary school!

At St Pauls, Musami

The following secondary schools were competing at the Zonal athletics this year, being held at St Pauls Sports Grounds, Musami:

Pakati, Dombobzvuku, Mabika, Munamba, Chemhondoro and Chikupo.

Teachers from the various schools were involvrd in admistering the events. Mrs Pindura, Deputy Head at Pakati, seen centrally, was Chief Recorder.

I am reliably informed tbat Pakati Secondary managed to win 6 golds on the day, cheered on by virtually the whole school, which is around 15km from the sports ground. Full details and report to follow soon, along with more photos hopefully.

I will update regularly on the progress of the Primary and Secondary schools sports teams as soon as I get information direct from thr schools themselves.
