Pumping life into league with clinic

The NRL League Bilong Laif (LBL) will be running a holiday clinic today (Tuesday(15 Dec) at the Korobosea International School in Port Moresby.

League Bilong Laif (League for Life) is a sport-for-development program which  works with primary schools in the four regions of PNG using rugby league as a tool to support education outcomes.

It uses a range of rugby league-themed educational and reading materials that encourage healthy lifestyles and boost students’ physical, social, literacy and maths skills.

The two hour clinic kicks off at 10am and will involve activities targeting skill development, drills and games for the school children.

Development officers will also deliver key social messages on respect and the importance of education for all Papua New Guineans.

LBL will close the year with this school clinic and will resume in 2016.
