Briefing Pic - Koro Sept 15 - Copy

Our Koro September 2015 expeditions are underway! On Thursday our 10 week volunteers touched down, and travelled to the Uprising Beach Resort in Fiji’s Pacific Harbour to begin their 4 day briefing. The first two days were spent enjoying some team building games, some volleyball, and some splash time, before being joined by our 5 week team on Saturday.

With the teams united the project preparation began, with a practice physical education lesson and quiz night on Saturday, before the briefing presentations and group workshops on Sunday. Think Pacific’s community development advisors visited the team to present on the youth and sports aims ahead, and local cultures and customs, and our staff team led sessions on how to deliver the ECE and Primary School intiatives.

Over the next 2 months our team shall provide education assistance, 1 to 1 classses, extra curricular activities and daily sports coaching sessions to 2 Kindergarten and 2 Primary Schools on the island of Koro in the Lomaiviti Province, whilst living at the heart of Nakodu village…it is a very exciting time ahead!

You can follow the teams progress through our blog at www.thinkpacific.com/blog, through our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/thinkpacific, and on our Twitter @thinkpacific!
