The excited students gathered in front of PNGFA technical director Taku Niebo listening, eager to see what he has brought for them. Well it’s to have fun with Just Play using the four objectives, increase healthy lifestyle choices, promote gender equality, increase opportunities for person with special needs and promote child protection.
To start off the program the kids were distributed into groups according to their house colours of red, blue, green and yellow with smile beaming as they gathered around to get instructions from the Just Play facilitators.
The first and second group went through some drills while the third and fourth group played small sided games. The groups then rotated to have everyone had a taste of the new content sessions.
The new content was first to be introduce to the school that grabbed the attention of the other kids who didn’t get the chance to try it but showed interest and gathered around to watch.
Mr Vali Wari one of the facilitator and also a teacher from Taurama Primary School give praise to the new content and encourages every school to be part of this program and help support the facilitators to get the program implemented in their schools.
This is the first rollout of the new content in Port Moresby before extending to other centres.
Thanks to UEFA, the Australian Government – through its agencies AusAID and the Australian Sports Commission – Football Federation Australia and UNICEF for the great support towards the development and delivery of the community based sports in the Pacific.
