Held last Saturday at Stad Linite, the championships are one of the main events organised to celebrate the country’s Independence day anniversary on June 29.

La Digue succeeded Cascade as the President’s Fair Play Cup for competitors at primary level, while Praslin took the secondary level cup from La Digue.

Seychelles Police Academy retained the President’s Fair Play Cup for competitors in the post-secondary category for the third year running.
President James Michel gave out the Fair Play cups.

Seychelles Nation will publish the other cup winners in another issue as it found out that the results announced at the end of the championships contained some errors and even teams were not happy even though they dealt with the situation in a very disciplined way.

The physical education and co-curriculum support section within the Ministry of Education will have to meet to discuss the matter this week and only after a final decision is taken will Seychelles Nation publish the results of the best schools and age category winners.

Vice-President Danny Faure, Designated Minister Vincent Meriton, other ministers, members of the National Assembly and of the diplomatic corps, high government officials, parents and schoolchildren also attended the event contested by athletes from state and private educational institutions.

The championships produced 15 records.
