Queensland Rugby Union partners with Logan City
Logan City Council and Queensland Rugby Union are partnering to deliver the Pacific Islander Community Engagement Project in Logan.

Logan City Council will invest in a $40,000 partnership with Queensland Rugby Union (QRU) to deliver the Pacific Islander Community Engagement Project (PICEP) in our city.

The project is designed to use sport to build meaningful and more cohesive relationships between Pacific Islander Communities and other cultural groups in Logan.

The aim is to leave lasting benefits for the Logan community through partnerships developed between government, business and community groups. The project will be delivered through an initial trial in 2014 with the view of developing into a more regular program of events in the future.

QRU General Manager, Game Development, Robert Donaghue said the project would build on the success of similar programs run by QRU.

 "The core focus of the PICEP, will be improving the attendance and educational performance of Pacific Islander students and providing capacity building volunteer education courses to the wider Pacific Islander community across the Logan region."

PICEP is a Logan: City of Choice initiative, delivering on the commitment to provide programs and services to bring people together to share and enjoy cultural diversity, build social cohesion and harmony and promote cultural exchange in Logan.
