- The motivation was not the good words or the nice words from people… Yellow house master
- We performed below expectation… Red house master
The yellow house has emerged the overall first at the 8th annual inter house sports competition of the Excellent Grade International School Abuja. They won again this year’s with a total of 232 point to beat the Green, Red and Blue House to second, third and fourth position respectively. This is making it the first time the house will win it for two consecutive year.
Speaking on their victory the yellow house master Mr. Edwin noted that at the beginning of this year’s sporting activities the yellow was under the net but God helped them to emerge victorious.
“When I was made the house master last year we came first. This year again they left me as the house master, I believe that we have tried and my students are actually supportive. In fact it is our joint efforts that is making us victorious.”
According to him the motivation was not the good words or the nice words from people, rather it was actually the writing off and the looking down on the yellow house.
“From the pre-event, it was just in the table tennis we did well and in the football we came fourth position. So out of the four houses we came fourth in the junior boys, fourth position in football and short-put. So if you check all the events apart from table tennis that we got first in the female category and second in the male, in all other events we were just fourth position. But on this day I made a promise that for the fact that we were just carrying fourth position we are just clearing way for others to have a test of victory but on the D-day when we enter the field we will rewrite our story.” He told crystal education media in a chat after the event.
He also pointed that this year’s event was different from the previous ones because formally the first and second position usually revolved around the red and the yellow house while blue and green wrestled for the third and fourth position. But this year was different. The red house coming third position paving way for green house in the second place.
To improve, Mr. Edwin advised that the school need to reshuffle the students or the house masters and mistresses noting that the victory is coming from the extra works done by the house masters and not the students.
For the Red House Master, Gabriel Orinya his team performed below his expectation as he was expecting a high performance. On the other hand the house master of the Green House Master, Mr. Chuks thinks his team performed averagely to come second and they tried are very excited.
