Demarscho Mouton

I am looking forward to the inter-high because our school spirit is higher than usual and it is a great opportunity for learners to compete but also have fun.

Genice Ockhuizen

I am excited for the Big Brag because it gets everyone excited and ready for the athletics so we are also ready to spend time with our peers and have fun.

Eva Museta

The inter-high is at the top of my list because I want to bond with some of my friends at other high schools and also participate in all the cultural events and activities.

Christine van Niekerk

Just like all my peers, I’m really looking forward to the inter-high because it’s the one with the most excitement. I also can’t wait for all the first team games so that I can cheer my sister on at the netball.

Nadia Horn

I’m expecting great excitement at the inter-high athletics because it gives us time to build relationships with learners from other schools.

Deppironnizia van Staden

At the inter-high athletics, we will definitely see Windhoek High and Windhoek Gymnasium not just compete against each other but also compete to represent the Khomas Region, and it will also give us a chance to challenge each other with some healthy competition.

Uzziel Bortei

I can’t wait to experience the teams at the school as they get ready for the inter-high athletics. It will be a great start to a great year.

Samuel Simon

The event I’m most looking forward to is the inter-high because it is the most anticipated sport event of the year between Windhoek High School and Windhoek Gymnasium.

Juanita Almirall

The most interesting event for me is the inter-high competition because of all the team spirit. It’s nice to see how everybody comes together and competes and how much spirit there is. Wag ‘n Bietjie usually wins.

Ngatangue Tjiueza

I’m looking forward to the watermelon festival, which happens after the inter-house competition. This is an event where the learners play with watermelons and just have fun.

Christiaan Prinsloo

I’m looking forward the inter-high. I want to see Swarthaak win. And then the relay races which is are pretty fun and then there’s the 3 000m I’m doing. I may not do very well but I’m doing it with hopes to get a point for my team.

Richard Voigts von Schütz

The event I really look forward to is the inter-high competition between Windhoek High School and Windhoek Gymnasium. Also, the sports festival, the inter-house between the three school teams. I am really looking forward to seeing who wins this year.
