Dragon House Roars to Victory in Command Secondary School’s 41st Annual Inter-House Sports Extravaganza

In a blaze of colors, cheers, and athletic prowess, Command Secondary School’s 41st Annual Inter-House Sports Competition unfolded with exhilarating moments that will be etched into the school’s history.

The event, a dazzling display of athleticism and camaraderie, showcased the talents of junior and senior students as they competed in a variety of events including athletics, volleyball, swimming, and track and field.

The vibrant spectacle saw students decked out in a rainbow of hues, each representing their respective houses: Stallion House in bold blue, Tiger House in sunny yellow, Rhinoceros House in fiery red, Palm House in lush green, Dragon House in regal purple, and Garrison House in the striking combination of red and black.

Parents, invited guests, ex-students, staff, and representatives from other schools added to the festive atmosphere, creating a lively backdrop for the day’s events.

The highlight of the evening was not only the athletic feats but also the combat exercises performed by the students, the spirited parade by each house, thrilling parents’ races, and the momentous distribution of prizes and medals to the deserving winners.

In a closely contested competition, Dragon House emerged as the champions, leaving an indelible mark on the annals of the school’s sports history. Tiger House secured a commendable second place, while Stallion House claimed the third spot.

Major General B. Hesso, Corp. Commander Education Director, graced the occasion as the chairperson, accompanied by Dr. Maryam Mohammed, Director Executive of the National Veterinary Resource Institute, representing the Chairperson of the event, Dr. Saty Ngulugun. The father and mother of the day, Barrister Jocelyn in Goliko, added to the prestigious guest list.

The Commandant, Lt. Col O.A Oduyemi, delivered an opening address, setting the tone for a day of celebration and competition. In his closing remarks, he emphasized the importance of sports and academics, urging students to take both seriously as pathways to success in life.

The entire school community united in the spirit of sportsmanship, as Lt. Col O.A Oduyemi aptly put it, “may this entire sports competition be a celebration of unity, sportsmanship, and the indomitable spirit that divides us as a community.”

As the cheers echoed through the school grounds and the sun set on the 41st Inter-House Sports Competition, Command Secondary School reveled in a day filled with unity, athletic excellence, and memories that will last a lifetime.
