“Sports is not just for the sporting elite as it builds healthy societies and fosters healthy well-being.”
This was highlighted by the New Zealand High Commissioner to Fiji Jonathan Curr while speaking at a reception on Rugby for Change last night.
The New Zealand High Commission in partnership with the University of the South Pacific has brought in sevens great Waisale Serevi and former All Black sevens player Rocky Khan to participate in the rugby themed “Diversity in Sports” event.
Curr says one of the very many things that unite Fijians and New Zealander’s alike is the love for sports.
“88 percent of people believe that sports and other physical activities provide them with opportunities to achieve and help build confidence.”
Meanwhile, the University of the South Pacific’s School of Social Sciences will be hosting a public seminar on Rugby for Change, Celebrating Diversity with Waisale Serevi at 4.30pm today.
The Seminar will see other prominent speakers such as Rocky Khan, Lailanie Burnes, Paula Ranatawake and Manasa Narita.
