Wake Up Ministry ---Time To Fill the Void

Wake Up Ministry ---Time To Fill the Void

The new school year will begin on Monday and this is the time when students with some measure of athletic ability begin to construct a frame work for ensuing term for the various track and field events.

 

However it has been six months now since this new administration has taken office and the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique affairs has yet to appoint a sports officer.

The recent exploits of international star Kirani James, has certainly fueled the engine and enthusiasm of our young stars that they too can climb to the top.

What is even more encouraging for our athletes is the fact that he came from the country, which more or less propelled the drive for success.

But the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs seems to be dragging their feet on filling such an important position in today’s society.

The present Senator, Jester Emmons, was the senior coach under the previous administration and he must have gained vital knowledge as it relates to the detriment that could result from that position remaining vacant.

There are several interested and qualified persons who have already applied for the position and this makes it even more difficult to comprehend the reasons for the delay.

The sister isles cannot proceed with any measurable competitive spirit without the proper molding of our young athletes.

Only earlier this year, we all stood in shock as Union Island’s Secondary school athletes took the Mini stadium by storm at the Southern Secondary Schools Meet.

Both Secondary Schools, particularly the Hillsborough Secondary have consistently given the perennial intercol giants several nerve-wracking moments with their performance.

The Ministry under the powers of the Minister, Senator, Permanent secretary and others, need to quickly fill this void.
