Street Ball Competition

The Physical Education Department had organized a street ball competition amongst the students in all grade level. The competition consisted of two categories: boys and girls. The event went on for two consecutive weeks during the third term.  It was specifically held during lunch break and after school hour.

The participated team from grade six to grade twelve had four members each as one has to standby for substitution purpose.
