The Koroboro International School was buzzing with great rugby union action as they hosted the Pacific in Union School’s challenge against Port Moresby Grammar School on Saturday.
Parents, teachers and Pacific in Union representatives were all part of the fun but it was a day solely for the students.
The excitement was all around as these grades 4, 5 and 6 students from Koroboro International and the Port Moresby Grammar school braved the sun’s heat in a game of rugby union.
It was obvious that these young rugby union enthusiasts couldn’t wait to get into the real action of the game but for these age groups, a game of touch rugby, tag and grab is the closest they’ll get to being physical.
Koroboro International and Port Moresby Grammar School are two of the eight schools involved in the Pacific in Union program which is an initiative of the PNG RFU in the Pacific to promote and teach the code at an early age.
As hosts of event, Koroboro led the way for both the girls and the boys on field and it was evident that the program has instilled basic footwork and ball handling skills in the students.
It was a fun day all around and as the heat got too much, the students wound down their ruby union fun and made for their homes. Many satisfied with a great day out.
