This is the four consecutive years that Blue House have ran away with the Inter-house Championship at Charles F. Broome Primary School’s sports day held Friday at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex.

Despite a good effort from Red House whose mantra was ‘Feet on Fire’, they were unable to burn away the power and speed that Blue House brought to the track Friday.
At the lunch interval Blue House led proceedings with a total of 790, Gold Warriors were actually in second on 715, Red House trailed in third position on 692 and Green Hulks were on 673.
