Two Australian experts from the Australian Sports Commission conducted a workshop

Feb 22 to Feb 27 on modified sports for children for students from the Physical Education

High School, according to an embassy press release.

The workshop culminated with over 100 primary school children participating in modified

football, volleyball and basketball games, and other activities planned and implemented

by the participants.

The experts were part of the Australian-Asian Sports Linkages Program (AASLP), an

effort funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The program

is designed to promote people-to-people and institutional links, leading up to the

Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
