A soccer and netball competition for Honiara teachers is currently underway.
Solomon Islands National Teachers’ Association (SINTA) branch in Honiara organised the event for its teachers to come together and enjoy themselves in sports.
Chairman of the SINTA branch Honiara Frank Robolite’e told Star Sports that the competition started last week.
“This is first of its kind for this branch to organize such a competition,” Robolite’e added.
“As a chairman for this branch, I am very happy to implement this initiative for the teachers to come together every Tuesday and Thursday to interact with each other during the game.”
He added that the whole idea behind this competition is to get the teachers together and socialise amongst themselves.
“For many years, I saw that there was no spirit of togetherness amongst the teachers adding that teachers just spent their days in their own schools and went back home which is too boring,” Robolite’e said.
“Therefore its good that teachers have some time to refresh their minds after working hours.”
He added that the competition will continue until next month.
Some of the games are being played at Mt Horeb school playing ground.
