(GIS) — Officials from the Department of Youth Development and Sports met with representatives from the Corporate Office of the Ministry of Education to present a revised concept of the Youth Sports Program.
Acting Permanent Secretary for Youth Development and Sports, Mr. Benson Emile, said the aim of the meeting was also to gain additional participation and feedback, in order to finalize the action plan for its development and implementation.
One of the objectives of the sports program, he added, is to ensure that all schools receive assistance from the Ministry of Youth Development and Sports in developing their sport programs.
“One of the primary objectives is to encourage the ministry to go in and help schools develop sports programs so that there are sporting activities throughout the year in schools.”
The review of the Sports Program took place on July 7.
