Inaugural sports workshop

Emoni Narawa
Tuesday, May 06, 2014

FIJI's first ever Special Olympics workshop ended last Friday in Suva.

The four-day workshop was attended by 40 registered participants where the chairperson of the organisation, Bishwa Sidal, hailed the event as a success.

"This is a first ever Special Olympic workshop in Fiji," he said.

"It's an organisation where we brought in volunteers and train them to help children and adults with intellectual disabilities through sports."

The event was held at the Suva Special School in Namadi. Sidal said all the sports played at Olympics Games was adapted and modified and taught to the participants. He said the vision of the organisation was to provide sports training and athletics competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

He said they would send the volunteers to work with special schools.
