The muddy rugby boots and muddy shorts will be something of the past once the Marist Brothers High School eight million dollars ground work is completed.
This was highlighted by the school Principal Timaima Sew during the ground breaking ceremony of the rugby field.
Sew says the new playing field will not only benefit their school athletes but the Marist family as a whole.
“The school appreciates and is grateful for your important assistance leading up to this event. The developing world recognizes the importance pf physical education as the form of exercise. This development will not only benefit our athletes but the family of Marist.”
Prime Minister’s Office Permanent Secretary Yogesh Karan says the works shows the government’s commitment to building a competitive sporting environment, developing young elite sports people.
Chinese Ambassador to Fiji Qian Bo says the ground will be constructed to an international standard with a 100 metre training track and a 15 metre jumping pit.
It will be constructed by the Chinese Guangzhou Construction LTD and is expected to completed within four months.
