Nadi District School yes­ter­day re­ceived a timely boost from Essendon play­ers James El –Mous­salli and team­mates Mathew Zema and Lloyd Hil­lard. They pre­sented 40 AFL balls to help pro­mote the game. The trio are on va­ca­tion and saw it fit­ting to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity. “This was a good op­por­tu­nity to teach the chil­dren about AFL,” EL-Mous­salli said. “I came a few years back to give vil­lagers some balls and it was amaz­ing.”

Hil­lard said they were look­ing at vis­it­ing other schools as well when they do come back to Fiji “We would like to thank the Nadi District School for giv­ing us this op­por­tu­nity to come here, Sher­a­ton Fiji and es­pe­cially the chil­dren for al­low­ing us to make a small dif­fer­ence,” he said. Head­teacher Meli Cabebula was grate­ful of the as­sis­tance. Mean­while, Nadi District School will be send­ing 28 ath­letes to the Nadroga Western Pri­mary Schools Zone meet next week.
