“Our aim is to expose these young athletes and get them experienced to the level of competition,” he said.

Bulitovo said they would be fielding 60 athletes for the two-day tournament at the ANZ Stadium.

“We are calling on our parents and former students of the school to come and support the children as they embark on their athletics journey.

“We are not financially supported, but I am grateful to the parents and to our team management for supporting these children. We will be representing the whole of Lami division.”

Team captain Marica Fipe hopes to learn as much as she can from the competition as she prepares to move up to secondary school next year.
