ABOUT 4000 teachers, parents and students from 18 Catholic schools in the Central Division gathered at the ANZ Stadium yesterday to celebrate a fun day with the theme "Christ in Sports and Culture".

With the objective to unite sports and culture in Christ, the event was organised to bring unity among the 18 schools said Paula Lala, the headteacher of Saint Joseph The Walker Primary School.

"We're gathering here 18 schools in the Central Division to come and enjoy a fun day - titled Christ in Sports and Culture," he said.

"This is an annual event when we come together and fellowship in Christ through sports and culture.

"This is an opportunity for teachers, parents and students to get to know each other and have fun at the same time."

The students participated in the 50metres, 75m, 100m and 200m track events before a culture presentation later in the afternoon.

Serua-based Lomary Primary School was the furthest school to be part of the event. Suva schools included Saint Joseph The Worker, St Agnes and Marcellin.
