NASFUND commemorates Remembrance Day with Families.

NASFUND commemorates Remembrance Day with Families.

As an annual event, the Management and staff of NASFUND in Port Moresby commemorate Remembrance Day as a family day out.

The Nasfund family fun day was initiated in 2013 to bring together family and friends of staff and the management in a day of battle through games and laughter.

Each year, staff and their families are put into four color houses (red, yellow, green and blue); the colors represent some of the big battles that took place in the country that played a significant role in the turn of events of World War II.

This year, the red house that represent the Bull Dog battle in Lae stole the title from the reigning champions of 2014, the blue house that represented the Bismark battle that took place between the Huon Gulf in Lae, Morobe Province. Yellow house that represented the Samarai battle came in second place, while Green house that represented the Kokoda track came in at third place.

This year’s games were kicked off with the custom of signing the National Anthem, reading of the pledge and paying homage to those who have lost their lives during the battles that each team represented.

Games that were played included; tug of war, captain ball, egg and spoon, sack race, three legged race, relay with the highlight of the mix netball challenge.

Chief Operations Officer, Mr. Warwick Vele said that the get together was a good opportunity for staff and families to come together and spend quality time in fun and games.

“ It is also a healthy way to get out from our work stations to take part in small sporting events with our families and have a good laugh at the end of the day”, he said.

The NASFUND FUN Day is an annual event to also remind staff to respect the historical battles that took place when they represent the different color houses on the day.
