The Fiji Primary Schools Athletics Asso­ciation received a timely boost of $10,000 from Pacific Energy in Suva yesterday.

The sponsorship is to assist in the hosting of the 2018 FMF Chow Games. This year the Games will be held in two separate venues; the Vanua Levu- based schools to compete at Holy Cross Parish grounds in Taveuni on Novem­ber 9-10 while the Central and Western- based schools to compete at the ANZ Stadium on No­vember 16-17.

Speaking during the cheque presentation yes­terday, association president Patrick Bower thanked Pacific Energy for their support.

“The sponsorship is a real boost to the associa­tion. The northern division schools are not able to come to Suva for the national finals because of some logistical problems.

“However, we have been able to facilitate for them to go to Taveuni and compete. That means the students will need to take a bus trip down to Buca Bay and board a boat to cross over to Taveuni.

“In the main land in Suva we have schools from districts around the island coming down to the ANZ Stadium to compete.

“So, we are once again grateful for the sponsor­ship as it will enable us to cater and take care of the welfare of the children that are competing.”

Pacific Energy business manager lubricants Tapuaki Finauga was grateful for the opportu­nity to be part of the Games.

“We’re very pleased to be part of this year FMF Chow Games,” he said.

“When Mr. Bower approached us and said look there is an opportunity for sponsors to come and support the children, Pacific Energy did not hesitate to come on board and sponsor them.

“I know that this year they have two different venues for the finals and we’re so excited and looking forward to a successful competition.

“We have been working with FPSA for many years and the main aim is for the children to get the experience and exposure from this competi­tion.”
