Primary and secondary school students aged 10-19 from more than 20 countries will compete in basketball, hockey, swimming, diving and track and field events.
SportingPulse software is being used to generate fixtures, results and ladders for the events, which means Games competitors can join mySport and display their event information on their mySport website. They can also create their profile, upload videos and photographs and share their news with family and friends back home.
Australian basketball star and mySport Ambassador Patty Mills is also an ambassador for the 2008 Pacific School Games and Games competitors and mySport members can add Patty to their friends.
As well as the competing in sporting events there are also opportunities for students to officiate at events, carry out volunteer duties and get involved in performing arts displays at the opening ceremony.
The opening ceremony will involve 1600 ACT students and will tell Canberra's story through song and dance. Around 10,000 spectators are expected to attend.
