“As we all know education is not only in the classroom, but also outside through sport. Sport is another form of education where we learn good values and leadership skills to assist our families, countries and all around the world,”

“We like to encourage our female students to get in to sports, and for them to further delevop their leadership talents in our community,”

“It is great to have the Classic Wallabies visit, and we are grateful to be included in their tour and a chance to join in,” Talalafai ended.

The Classics are scheduled to continue their #GoldBlooded tour in Uplou for the next two days, with visits to Samoa Primary School, Marist Mulivai Primary, Samoa College, and Pesega College, just to name a few.

This trip is in partnership with Samoa Rugby Union, Rugby Australia, the Australian Government and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
