IBS stages successful sports day

The Institute of Business Studies successfully staged its sports day last Friday at its campus at Mt. Eriama, just outside of Port Moresby.

The annual event is held with the aim to promote fun and unity amongst students and staff.

Vice president of the Student Representative Council (SRC), Issachar Kara said he was pleased to see a big turnout from students and staff.

 “The IBS Sports Day enables students and staffs to take part through sports outdoor from their everyday learning and teaching environment,” said Kara.

Sports played on the day included touch rugby, soccer (Futsal), volleyball and netball.

PNG Men’s basketballer, Dia Muri and High Performance Strength and Conditioning Coach, Jacklyn Travertz led the students and staff in their warm ups before the games.

Kara also commended the efforts of the SRC and sports committee for organising the event.

“IBS is now regarded as a university institution and hosting such annual sporting event will enable us to prepare in the future for university sporting events like the National University Games,” said Kara.
