The Magiagi Primary School rugby teams will be hitting the field in style the rest of the season in new rugby jerseys direct from the U.S.A.
On behalf of Ambassador Scott Brown, U.S. Embassy Apia Charge d’Affaires, Tony Greubel presented the new jerseys to Principal Katalaina and both the junior and senior boys rugby teams.
“We are happy to do what we can to support youth development in Samoa,” said Ambassador Brown. “The opportunity to play sports meant a lot to me as a young child – all the way through my college years, and I hope the Magiagi Primary School rugby teams have a great season.”
With the colors green, white and black and their school crest engraved on the jersey the teams were ecstatic to receive their new jerseys.
Principal Katalaina expressed her gratitude to the Embassy and to Ambassador Brown for continually assisting the school.
She charged the rugby team to live up to their school motto: “Lototele e Finau.”
