The programme celebrates exceptional performances by student athletes at the primary and secondary school levels as well as from the Cotton Thomas Comprehensive School. The categories to be considered are football, basketball, cricket, track and field, tennis and netball as well as Special Olympics.
Director of the Department of Sports Anthony Wiltshire noted that the theme: “Making Dreams a Reality Through Sports” is reflective of the potential future that lay ahead of the awardees.
“The children would have been motivated because we know there are intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and these children, being at the top of their games in the various schools, will seek to stay on top when they transition to a new class, form, competition,” Mr. Wiltshire stated.
Awards will also be presented to outstanding workers in the Department of Sports, corporate partners and supporters within the Ministry of Education structure such as school bus drivers, principals, and head teachers.
