Cokes, Deans On Hold

Minister for Education, Heritage, and Arts Premila Kumar says proper planning is needed to consider holding the popular Fiji Secondary Schools Coke Games and Deans competitions.

The minister, who was at the opening of the new Fiji National University state-of-art gymnasium yesterday, could not confirm the staging of the two events.

“We have not met with any sporting body yet to discuss the dates of when the sporting activities will take place,” she said.

“We need to consider mid-year and annual exams, and the school breaks. We need to take all that into consideration and talk to sporting bodies regarding the dates they are looking at so that we can find a date that is suitable for both parties.

“Only then we can we say yes. We need to have discussions; work it out and come out with a plan. Then we will be notifying the schools. I am not giving a yes or no answer.”

Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) and Adi Cakobau School (ACS) are defending champions in the boys and girls Coca-Cola Games before it was cancelled in 2019 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the Deans rugby competition, Queen Victoria School (QVS) are the defending champions. QVS also holds the record of 24 wins after defeating neighbour’s RKS 13-12 in the 2019 final at Sigatoka’s Lawaqa Park.
