More than a hundred Games personnel directly involved in preparations for the Sol2023 Pacific Games, have over the past three days had the opportunity of visiting all Games Venues and Villages in Honiara.
Organized by the Games Organizing Committee, the site visit involved staff from GOC, the National Hosting Authority (NHA) and the Government Services Integration Committee (GSIC).
“The site visit was mainly to give our staff the opportunity to see the progress of all Games facilities, ensuring everyone is well versed and informed where we are at, as far as our preparations is concerned.
“Its primary objective is to provide all our staff with valuable insights into the operations of each village and sports venue before and during this year’s Games. It is also aimed at getting staff to familiarize themselves with the venues and villages firsthand.
“This is also an essential part of preparing our staff for the successful execution and delivery of the Games this year,” Joseph Iniga, GOC’s Village Service Manager said.
The sites visited include;
Games Villages: Saint Joseph Tenaru School, Don Bosco, King George Sixth School, SINU Panatina Campus, SINU Kukum Campus and Saint Nicholas School.
Games Venues: DC Park, Maranatha Hall, SIFF Academy, National Hockey Stadium, National Stadium, Aquatic Centre, National Tennis Centre, Friendship Hall, Honiara Golf Course, HCC Arena and Lawson Tama.
