IBS promotes healthy living through sports


The Institute of Business Studies University promotes health and wellbeing of students and staff through sports activities on campus.
Students and staff of the IBSU, the Southern Cross University and IBS College of Tvet at 6-Mile cancelled classes on Friday to participate in sports at the IBS main campus.
The sports day was arranged by the IBS student representative council with the support of the management to actively involve students to participate physically and to identify their sports abilities on the field.
Pro Vice-Chancellor Dr Murugesan said IBS was not only providing quality education but also ensure students experience the physical education which involves sports while studying.
He said the management was supporting the SRC and students with annual activities.
“We include our international degree programmes, IBS degree programmes as well as the IBS College of Tvet students and staff to participate together in these activities,” he said.
“Papua New Guineans are now interested in all sports especially rugby, soccer, basketball, volleyball and such event is for students to come out to show and identify their talents on the field.”
A team of eight strength and conditioning couches from the High Performance Training Centre were invited to coordinate the games.
HPTC marketing officer Edith MacLaren said the centre has a long standing relationship with IBS through it emerging talent programme where few students were participating.
She said such organised activities in schools and institutions helps students to identify their abilities in sports.
