Junior Athletics

Over the last two weeks, Union Preparatory School and the High School Junior Department have had their inter-house athletics days as well as Inter-schools against Volkskool. 

On Tuesday 31 January Union hosted the Annual Primary Interschools Athletics Meeting against Laer Volkskool.  In perfect weather conditions, our beautiful school fields were a hive of activity where athletes were involved in a total of 62 events, ranging from Under 7 to Under 13, involving field and track events. Many of the races were closely contested, making it difficult for the place judges.

During the Inter-schools meeting 16 new records were set, 7 by Union athletes.
Congratulations to the following learnerson setting new records:
Ciara Kivedo - U9 60m
Daniel Short - U9 60m and 80m
Chloe Erasmus - U10 Long Jump
Fatima Siraz - U10 1200m
Sisipho Arnols - U13 100m and Long Jump
At the Inter-schools meeting the final points position was:
