The School Administrator, Elyakub Abubakar described the events as exciting as they provided the young students and pupils the opportunity to showcase their talents and improve their well-being.

“We believe sport is one of the cardinal areas where the unification of Nigeria is sort for, that’s why we equally tend to promote it and pay a lot of emphasis on sports development in our school, so what you are seeing is just a manifestation of what we are known for apart from academic excellence”.

"From time immemorial academics and sports go hand-in-hand and if you flashback to those early years you will realize that the core crop of our athletes was gotten from the school, so that tradition has to continue.

"Here we are discovering new talents that will not only represent the school but equally Nigeria shortly".
The Famaks school director said that the school has a lot of its students doing well in academics and sports around the world.

On his part, the games coordinator and Principal of Famaks British School Kaduna, Mr. Daniel Odogwu explained that the school inter-house competition is one of the big events the school normally put together to see how to fit the students and pupils.

" We believed that there is no doll child and every one child boy or girl should be able to partake in sports and in doing that we have been able to carry everybody along".

On his part, a former Special Adviser on Sports Matters to Kaduna State Commissioner of Sport Development, Ismaila Umaru Lere described the student's performances as something encouraging.

"We are interested to see that school sport is enhanced at the primary and secondary levels so that the young children's skills and abilities are developed at a very young age".

To manage the sports infrastructure gap, Lere advised on the need to inculcate sport into the educational system, adding that "very soon we have sport policy document in the state which will address that".
