The annual Prestige Athletics Meeting took place at Daljosaphat Stadium today, and Paarl Boys High and Girls High were crowned winners!
The fact that covid-19 only allowed the matrics to attend the meeting, this did not deter the schools to bring on the ‘gees’.
The meeting is girls and boys combination of teams from 5 schools. Paarl Boys and Paarl Girls’ High combine as one team, Paarl Gimnasium High(both girls and boys), and Stellenbosch duo Bloemhof High and Paul Roos High team up !
