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 teams. They will also receive an educational 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 each days play results will be posted on the Pacific School Games website as well as our app.

All participating students will take part 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 all teams will be recognised for their performance during the week. The top three placed teams in both age groups will be presented medals. The Closing Ceremony for both age groups will be conducted at the conclusion of the last match on Saturday, 9 December, 2017.

There will be a boys and girls 15 Years and Under All Australian team selected. All selected players will be rewarded with a plaque for their selection in the team.
