The World Rugby Get Into Rugby (GIR) programme will be introduced as part of the school’s curriculum.

This plan was introduced following Fiji’s gold medal win in Rio last year.

In an early bid to set up the Fijian campaign for a second Gold Medal in 2020 the Fijian Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts, has approved implementing the GiR programme in Schools in Physical Education Classes.

This support boosts the initiatives of Oceania Rugby and the Fiji Rugby Union to train qualified GiR coaches and coordinators following the development of a joint Teacher Operational Training Plan.

The successful implementation of this plan sees both primary and secondary school teachers attending courses to being trained as GIR coaches by qualified Development Officers. These courses link the GiR programme and the values of Rugby to the education syllabus in Fiji.

Oceania Rugby GIR Coordinator Tihrani Uluinakauvadra says “Teacher Training Plan is the realisation of the joints efforts of Pacific In Union, World Rugby, Oceania Rugby and the Fiji Rugby Union to see that every school child in Fiji has access to a great Rugby experience,” Uluinakauvadra said.
