ABOUT 600 primary school students in the Western Division participated in the "Get into Rugby" program, a partnership between the Fiji Rugby Union and the Fiji National Sports Commission.

The program funded by the International Rugby Board was launched in Suva earlier this month.

Students from six different schools from Tavua, Vatukoula and Nadarivatu took part in the program which commissioned to increase the number of male and female players, coaches and referees in the game over the next four years.

The program saw 474 boys and 246 girls from Tavua Primary, Tavua District, Toko Sanatan Primary, Vatukoula Convent, Natawa Primary and Nadarivatu Primary schools work with the program co-ordinators and FNSC development officers Josaia Tuinamata and Saiasi Bose along with FRU's development officer Joeli Tubu.
