Their performance in the tournament was splendid. After a great struggle, our school managed to enter in the semi-final of the tournament. They again played superbly in semi-finals. Each and every one was very happy as we entered in the finale of the tournament. The match of finale was very important and interesting and, on the day, again our learners made us proud, and they won the tournament and successfully achieved the TROPHY. Each player got medal and special prizes. The day was really a proud day for our school as we defeated many schools of Burundi and achieved the trophy.
