The Fiji Rugby Union has been having discussions with the Ministry of Education on introducing rugby in the secondary school’s curriculum as an optional subject from 2013.
Navuso Secondary School’s Vice Principal Maika Saqatanaivalu brought up the idea two years ago.
Since then, the FRU and the Ministry of Education have been working together on this.
FRU’s Rugby Development Manager Sale Sorovaki says the introduction of rugby into the secondary school curriculum is important to ensure the acquisition of the fundamental skills needed in the game of rugby.
Should the curriculum be approved by the Ministry of Education, Sorovaki says they plan to start with pilot programs in secondary schools that currently have rugby academies.
Should the Ministry of Education approve the Rugby Basics Curriculum, it will be offered to Forms 5 and 6 students and will also be included in the FSLC examinations.
