Public Servants wraps up weeks of sports with aquatic activities
By DEAN GREENAWAY
Public Servants will wrap up their annual Public Sector Development Program
Week with aquatic activities on Brewers Bay Beach on Saturday. Inclement
weather interrupted last Saturday's softball games which were played
Monday. Cricket was also wiped out on Sunday. Volleyball and Basketball
were played Tuesday night at the Netball Court in Road Town, followed by
Wednesday's full day of track and field events at the A. O. Shirley
Before activities began, PSDP Coordinator Petrona Smith-James gave her
outlook. "We certainly look forward to the full and active participation of
all public officers in the week's events, as well as community
participation by coming out, cheering us on and celebrating with us."
Erica Smith-Penn, PSDP Week Sports Coordinator added: "I would want each
and every public officer, whether they are participating or cheering on
their favorite team, to come out and do as much as they can to make this
Public Service Week a great success," Smith-Penn said instead of two teams
competing as in the past, there are now four teams reflecting the spirit
and theme of what each grouping is all about. Teams include Ministry of
Communications and Works and its departments Panthers. Natural Resources,
Labor and Governor's Office Killer Whales; Ministry of Health, Education,
Culture and Welfare, Warriors and the Chief Minister's Office/Ministry of
Finance and Statutory Boards Eagles.
"This whole idea of splitting into more teams came about because there was
so much interest in participating in the different events, sports in
particular, so much so, that we found it necessary to split and in the
interest of making things more competitive," Smith-Penn explained.
