ALL SAINTS SECONDARY WELCOMES ACTING MINISTER
Monday 25th February 2013

The Acting Minister of Education, Sports, Youth and Gender Affairs, Sen. Hon. Winston Williams Jr. took time out to accept an invitation from Sports Coach John Lloyd to visit the All Saints Secondary School to get a first hand view of existing and proposed sports and recreational initiatives at the institution. On his arrival, the Senator Williams was also welcomed by Deputy Principal Comacho who provided a guided tour of the Institution.

Coach Lloyd, a staff member in the Department of Sports has been on assignment to work with the Secondary School in the area of the school’s football development. In addition to coaching football however, Coach Lloyd has been able to engage the Management, Staff and Students of the All Saints Secondary to establish the only public school fitness gym on the island. Additionally, the joint collaboration has resulted in ongoing upgrades of the quadrangle with the long term expectation that it will serve as a green space in which students can work and play safely.

The Acting Minister lauded the efforts of the Coach and School for initiating the projects designed to enhance the sports and recreational programme for the students. Senator Williams added that such initiatives will positively impact on the health and wellness of the staff and students at the school. During the tour, Coach Lloyd also used the opportunity to take the Acting Minister on a tour of the field which is located between the Secondary School and the JT Ambrose Primary School, a short distance away.Both the Coach and the Deputy Principal called for the fencing and upgrading of the area to provide urgently needed space which can be utilised by both primary and secondary schools for sports and recreation. School officials underscored the need to enclose the area as soon as possible since the nearly 800 students at the institution have long outgrown the available space within the confines of the school buildings.

Senator Williams made a commitment to engage the Ministry with responsibility for Lands to address the extensive illegal squatting observed on school property as well as the Public Works Department and the Board of Education to address the fencing and upgrading of the field.

After the tour of the field, Minister Williams spent time with students and teachers in the Home Economics and the Agricultural Science Departments.  Students were happily engaged in preparing meals and planting and packing eggs from the laying hens raised as part of the school programme.
