DDKA’s maiden inter house sport excites pupils, staff 

The Proprietor of ODelight Kiddies Dedicated Academy, Ms Eunice Dike, says the experience by the staff and pupils during its maiden Inter House Sport would remain engraved in the hearts and minds for a long time to come.   

In a chat with Blueprint in Abuja, Ms Dike said being the maiden inter house sports competition of the school, the performance of the student was way beyond expectation. 

The inter house sport organizing recently is the first by the school since it was founded several years ago. 

The school is situated in Jikwoyi, a suburb of the federal capital Territory (FCT).

She said, “It was a wonderful one. It beat my imagination. It was beyond what I was expecting. The Lord took control and the children participated very well. We also invited some schools that participated and awards were given to people that did well. It’s something that we will never forget. It’s a memorial and the first inter house sport in the school. 

“The children were so happy, if you look at the way the children were jumping up and down. We really came out to make sure that the children were happy. Our motive was to make sure everyone was carried along. That motivation was there and everyone waited to be the best and they came out with their best. And you know in competition, we always have a winner. We are so happy and we are glad that those faces were lightened and brightened and all of them went home with that gladness of heart because of the event,” she added.

On her part, the Head teacher of the school, Ifunaya Arinze, said the excitement of the children knew no bounds. 

According to ‘madam Ifunaya, as she is fondly called, the pupils were already yearning for another one.

“The inter-house sport was such a wonderful one. It was one of a kind. You know this is the first inter house sport that was observed. It was just beautiful. The children did well, the sponsors did well and it was so amazing. We wish to have another one that will be better than this one next time.

“It’s a day to be remembered because this is the first time the children are experiencing it. In the activities that were carried out, you know they participated fully, they were really excited, and because of that excitement they would want us to organise more of this kind of activity,” she said. 

Gideon Chinedu went home with a trophy as the overall best pupil in the competition. 

Among the four houses that participated in the competition, Blue house came out tops followed by Green House; Red House came third while Yellow House despite a strong showing took the fourth position.
