BY MR. NYAGA EPITUS ( GAMES MASTER)
It is another precious moment that I am glad to be part of the team contributing to this year’s school magazine. From the games department, we say welcome to Baricho High school department report. 2018 has been yet another busy year for the Games department where several activities took place .Early this year we conducted a inter house
Athletics competition which was very successful .The winning house as Longonot with Bencarson being the 2nd runners up .Other events in the term include Extra county Decathlon Swimming Handball Rugby 15’Basketball, Soccer under 16 which for the first time in history went up to the county levels .We look forward to a better performance next year .
In the second term activities included volley ball, soccer under 19,
Racket games and rugby 7’s .Though the competition was stiff our students did their best .Chess is one of discipline we have taken to the national over years .This year was not an exemption and we took part I the nationals at kaimosi girls vihiga county where we fielded U-14, U-16, &U-18.
During the year the school administration was able to procure sets of uniforms in basketball, rugby and soccer .Our most sincere appreciation for the continued support.
Over the past few years, we have been facing a lot of challenges in this department. However, over great over our great resolve has not deterred us from achieving our objectives. In that connection, we have and continue experiencing the problems of coaches. Thus, coaching have been a great problem owing to the fact that the teachers are always having a flurry of activities hence making it difficult to prepare their own teams adequately. Furthermore, issues to deal with inadequate playgrounds posses another challenge to the students. Owing to the high number of students it becomes impossible to accommodate many of the students who would like to play in the playing fields. For now the has two football pitches, rugby, basketball and volleyball pitch. We request the administration to look into these issues.
Finally I want to thank the administration for the continuous support of the year.
