Kids’ Athletics Deemed A Success

 

(Curtis Morton): The 3rd annual Kids’ athletics festival coordinated by the Joycelyn Liburd Primary School was held on Friday 30th November. The festival which involves all of the Primary Schools on the island was held at the Hard times Playing field and commenced just after 1.30 pm.

There was a brief ceremony before the on the field action commenced.  The invocation was delivered by Teacher Terres Dore and the proceedings were chaired by Headmistress Barbara Hendrickson who warmly welcomed all present and hoped that the objectives would be achieved.

Director of Sports Mr. Trevor Chapman delivered the feature address.  He warmly congratulated Coach at the School, Kurvin Wallace for initiating the idea and for ensuring that it has become a success story. He told the children present tha he too was a former outstanding athlete but that the children his day did not have the privileges that are being afforded them in these current times.  He asked them to grasp the opportunities provided to develop and excel.

He also saluted Coach Wallace as the first Olympian from Nevis and reminded the Coaches present that his Department was ever ready to assist in ensuring that such programs are continued for the advancement of the children. Coach Wallace then gave an overview of the day’s activity and noted that it was in an effort to help the children to develop in a fun way, without the addition of that real competition styled atmosphere.

The focus of the activities involved running, jumping and throwing. He also pointed to the successes of Adrian Williams at JAVELIN and told the children that they should seek to emulate him. The vote of thanks was delivered by Guidance Counsellor at the School, Ms Andie Neale. The Primary Schools then got involved in the activities of the day, under the watchful eyes and guidance of most of the Coaches of the Primary schools across the island.

At the end of the day, the following awards were made:

Most outstanding boy: Joseph Tomlinson of the ivor Walters Primary School

Most outstanding girl: Annique Jeffers of the St.James’ Primary School.
