School soccer comp enters round two

The school soccer competition is into its second week of proper season this weekend at the Sir John Guise Stadium.

Last week’s competition saw a good turnout of parents, guardians and teachers to show support for the six registered schools taking part under their respective divisions.

The confirmed six registered schools; Gerehu Primary, Kopkop College, Waigani Primary, Waigani Christian Academy, Gordons International and Koroboro International, each have several teams playing under their assigned divisions.

Competitions manager Willie Vaira expressed his gratitude to all the school children that showed up in their right sporting gears, and organising themselves to play under their allocated divisions, which showed commitment into the progress of the school competition in the coming weeks.

“All teams are in their sporting gear, and it seems professional, last week children came with their teachers and today they came with their parents since the morning, the interest has grown and we are looking forward to it every weekend, as the competition is going to make some good waves,” he said.

Vaira added that students and parents are also happy that their children are making new friends and enjoying their day and that it’s a good initiative under the PNGFA President John Kapi-Nattos leadership, in line with their “Go Rural to Go Global” program.

He also shared his experience, on being part of the school boys’ soccer program when he was young, and is glad to be part of the team reviving this initiative again.

Competitions are now set for every Sundays, from 9am to 4pm at the Sir John Guise Stadium.
