Sports for Champions Event
This event is designed to inspire the children, and raise an awareness of sports which motivates them into active participation. They believe that their athletes’ stories will bring out a drive to succeed in the children at school, and motivate them to become more involved with local sports clubs and competitions. Tailoni Fale’u Palelei Mafi came to visit Green Meadow on behalf of Sports for Champions. This retired professional rugby player started off talking to the children about his own experiences within rugby, the competitions he had to train for, the benefits of nutrition and a healthy lifestyle and finished off by showing the children some rugby moves. To the children’s amusement he also got some of the teachers up to perform the Haka with him!
