Rugby, football and swimming in Suva

Review date 25 jul. 2018


My 4 week teaching and coaching experience in Fiji was life changing. I was based in Suva and living in a homestay with a local family associated with my project. I got on with them so well and they made me feel like a member of the family - I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was primarily wokring on the Sports Coaching project and I threw myself straight into the project. I was teaching P.E lessons for 11/12 yr olds which involved playing rugby (the national sport which is taken very seriously), basketball, netball and general fun games. I was also taking the children swimming nearly every week which was a rewarding experience.

I also had the unique opportunity to coach the Suva Primary Athletics squad where I was experiencing more intensive training for talented athletes. A definite once in a lifetime opportunity and one I can't recommend enough!
