Ministry Focuses On Selection Of Territorial Sport


An annual report from the Ministry of Education and Culture stated that the National Sports Policy was drafted and presented to Cabinet in 2014.

Last year, Minister for Education and Culture, Hon. Myron Walwyn announced that strides to foster territorial pride continue with consultation on the ‘territorial’ sport.

During his Territory Day remarks, Hon. Walwyn stated that the Ministry is currently consulting with the public to select a Territorial Sport. The Minister explained that a Territorial Sport is a sport that is considered to be an intrinsic part of the culture of a nation or Territory.
Hon. Walwyn said that it is his Ministry’s aim that at the end of the public consultation, the Territorial sport will be approved in the House of Assembly.  “We ask that the public will share their views and make suggestions so that the chosen sport aptly reflects the views of the majority,” he said.

The other Territorial symbols were unveiled to the public on 1 July 2013 at a ceremony that was held in observance of Territory Day at the Noel Lloyd Positive Actions Movement Park.
