St Joseph’s School were the first to hit the track this term ahead of the Rarotonga Primary Schools’ Prince of Wales Athletics Championship later this term.


Students aged from three-years-old through to the senior students in Year 8 all took part in the running events at the National Stadium yesterday, as preparation for the upcoming inter-primary school competition.
Principal Kathy Nubono said they were “blessed” with the perfect race-day conditions.
“The sun is shining and our students are out enjoying themselves. Each year we seem to have beautiful weather for our athletics,” said Nubono.
“This is a great way for us to choose our finalists who will be representing us at the Prince of Wales athletics competition against the other schools around the island.”
Students were all participating in each of the school’s four houses – St Peter, St Patrick, St Mary and St Peter Chanel – with the top house being crowned the overall champion.
Nubono said the school were unable to include field events yesterday, but these will be included in the practices ahead of the Prince of Wales competition.
“While we get amazing support from our parents, we were unable to ensure that we had enough support to be able to have field events as well.
“We will make sure our students include the field events in our training sessions.”
Results were not available at the time of going to print yesterday, but CINews will have them in Saturday’s edition.
