Annual Inter House Sports Meet - 2023
Out of the hundreds of events that illuminate the Ave Maria Convent calendar, the Annual Inter House Sports Meet is one that shines the most. It is a celebration of the school’s athletic capabilities and a tribute to all Avians. Thus, the Annual Inter House Sports meet, for the academic year 2023 was held at the School Ground on the 4th of April 2023. This year, the school was blessed with the presence of Mrs. Swarna Fernando, the Secretary Sri Lanka Throw Ball Federation, Past Physical Training Instructress of the school, kindly agreeing to be our chief guest. The track and field events had been a high-tension battle between houses for points, from the heats to the final events on the day of the sports meet. The commitment, dedication and enthusiasm of the participating houses, Andrew, Masson, Coudert and Solange played a paramount role in enlivening the day and making it a great success. Students as well as athletes had been competing among one another to win events and gain points for their houses while the teachers did their level best to support them and guide them to victory. On the day of the sports meet the 200m and 4 x 100m relays were conducted for the under 13 to under 20 age groups, followed by various group games. In addition to these, there were few more unique events such as the tug of war and the staff race which added colour to the event. The highlight of the day was the drill display, dazzling the spectators with bright hues and synchronized steps. The March past, led by the prefects Squad, headed by the School games captain, culminated in Coudert House emerging victorious while Solange House emerged Runners up. At the latter part of the sports meet, after an inspiring speech from our principal and a very reminiscent speech from our chief guest, the awards were handed out. The day drew to a close with the most anticipated moment of the day, the announcing of the winning House. Solange House emerged the overall champions, while Coudert emerged First Runners up and Andrew emerged the Second Runners up.
