Most of this sup­ple­ment is a glance back down mem­ory lane and the GKSC jour­ney so far. But we now have sus­tain­ing in­ter­ests in girls’ rugby devel­op­ment in part­ner­ship with the Ko­mo­dos and the Priscilla Hall Me­mo­rial Foun­da­tion. Some of these ac­tiv­i­ties bring new kids into rugby. Some is aimed at the devel­op­ment of kids that have been under our um­brella for a few years.

We are also de­lighted to be work­ing with ini­tia­tives out­side Greater Jakarta. On Jan­uary 14, 2018 we will launch a new ini­tia­tive in East Java. This is a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Fed­erasi Hockey In­done­sia, East Java with the full sup­port of the Surabaya Mayor’s of­fice and the Re­gency of Si­doardjo. FHI-PJT has se­lected two schools from each of Surabaya and Sid­uardjo. Twenty 8-10 year olds from each will com­mence a one-year hockey in­duc­tion. The pro­gramme de­sign is from Vik­neswaren, who has just de­signed and launched a new national hockey pro­gramme in Malaysia. Vik is a for­mer Malaysian in­ter­na­tional player and national coach. Says Vik, “I am so pleased to be help­ing out with kids hockey devel­op­ment in In­done­sia. I have many se­nior hockey friends in the coun­try. I am par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with the com­mit­ment and vi­sion of the FHI-PJT. The sup­port of a part­ner like BritCham opens new op­por­tu­ni­ties for kids in East Java. Hockey is a sport that many can hope to have a real op­por­tu­nity to ex­cel”. The FHI-PJT Chair­man, Don­nie Gu­nawan, is “Ex­cited that an in­ter­na­tional as­so­ci­a­tion is com­mit­ting re­sources to chil­dren in East Java. Thank you BritCham and Giv­ing Kids A Sport­ing Chance”.
