Promoting sporting excellence and a healthy, active lifestyle has always been part of the R.E.A.L Schools ethos. In line with this, R.E.A.L International School in Shah Alam recently organized its annual Inter-House Games which pitted the collective and individual skills of its students representing the four Sports Houses of Blue, Red, Green and Yellow.
Among the sports events that were up for competition and recognition include track & field, basketball, football, shot put, tug-of-war, and even Frisbee and a ‘jogathon’, to name a few. Held at the school field as well as the surrounding Kayangan Heights area, the competition amongst the respective Houses was stiff but it was all in the spirit of fair play and good sportsmanship. With lots of action on show and several sporting talents unearthed along the way, the Inter-House Games is always an ideal ground to foster unity and teamwork within the school community. And so it proved.
