Expectations for Tuks in the Varsity Cup There is no point in competing in a competition if your goal is not to win the competition. We are very focused as a team at the moment and believe that we can go all the way in 2013.

Words of motivation for students Focus on what you need to do and do not worry about what other people think or say about you.
