It is compulsory for all competing and officiating students to attend the Educational Excursion. This year at the Pacific School Games the Educational Excursion will have two components.

Component 1 – Will be a session at the University of Adelaide which will provide a fun, informative and interactive session. More details to come.

Component 2 – Either before or after component 1, each team will travel to a chosen sport to support their fellow state/territory/national teams. They will also receive an education session on that particular sport and hear from a high achiever in the sport.

Draws will be available at a later date.

At the conclusion of the each days play results will be posted on the Pacific School Games website as well as our app.

All participating athletes will participate in Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

The Opening Ceremony will be at the Adelaide Showgrounds on the afternoon of Sunday, December 3, 2017. All States, Territories and International teams will parade on to the arena to their chosen song. To read more about the Opening Ceremony click here.

Each sport will have their own Closing Ceremony where each team is recognised for their performance during the week and the three top place teams will be awarded medals. There will be a 16 Years and Under Boys and Girls All Australian team selected at the Closing Ceremony. All selected players will be rewarded with a plaque for their selection in the team. The Closing Ceremony will be conducted at the conclusion of the last match on Saturday, 9 December, 2017.
