FASANOC's CGF administration officer Fesaitu Mario spoke on the Commonwealth Games "One Million Stars Against Violence" project, which included making stars that will be displayed at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia.
Students were appreciative of the topics which included the Olympic Values brought up by the STOP Champions.
VOA Champion Kinisimere said this year, based on the three pillars Move, Learn and Discover, National Olympic Committees are organising sports, cultural and educational activities around the world.
"Olympic Day is a great opportunity to look at the contribution of sport to global social issues that can affect our community, such as education, health promotion, HIV prevention, women’s and girls’ empowerment, environmental protection, peace building and local community development.
Kini said the teaching of Olympic values which are excellence, friendship and respect was important in character building and visiting schools was a step up for the STOP Programme.
The FASANOC trip was part of its efforts to promote the Olympic Day Run which is on the 30th of June.
The Million Stars project was also popular with the students who were eager to amke stars after learning of the reason behind the project and that it would be showcased at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.
