The coaching clinic was piloted at the school in November 2016, drawing 16 students from grades six to eight, four teachers and 16 other youngsters taking part.
 
The clinic included basketball drills, techniques, life skills training and Olympic values education.
 
However it was found that there was a need to improve the condition of the Juni's basketball court. So ExxonMobil set about refurbishing the court.
 
Juni Primary School head teacher Shelly Kaiabe said the school was very happy with the improvements ExxonMobil PNG had made to the court.
 
"We are all excited and cannot wait to use the court," said Kaiabe.
