MUHAMMAD Luqman Danish Azman Omar enjoyed the challenge of the Standard Taking held at SMK St Paul (SPI) in Seremban from Jan 23 ro 25.

The boy who is in Form One Henry, had to compete in the 100m sprint, 400m, shot putt, discus throw and long jump.

The boys in the afternoon session competed in all the events so as to score points for their respective sports houses named after the SPI’s La Salle Brother Directors (former principals).

The programme also promotes better understanding between the seniors and juniors in SPI as they compete side by side in the same Under-14 category.  

Paul House (purple colour) emerged as the afternoon session’s champions with 115 points, followed by Barnitus (red) 113, Adrian (yellow) 103, Director (orange) and Edward (green) were level with 99 points each and finally John (blue) had 98 points.

Muhammad Luqman Danish who represented Director House said: “ The discus throw is a new event, which I didn’t learn during my time at the SPI Primary School.

“My Physical Education and class teacher Mr S Rajasingam taught us how to throw it two weeks ago and I managed to do well.

“I made many new friends from other classes during the Standard Taking,” added Muhammad Luqman. Rajasingam who is also the school’s athletics coach said: “In a boys’ school like SPI, there is a wealth of sports talents.”

“The boys are full of energy and excited every time they step into the field.

“The Standard Taking events tested the boys both physically and mentally as well as identified the boys who will excel in athletics.

“The sports house masters have now easily chosen their competitors for our upcoming annual sports day on Feb 22,” he added.
