The Antigua and Barbuda Olympic Association hosted the first CANOC-CXC Physical Education and Sport Workshop at the Jolly Beach Resort from March 14-15th, 2012.
The Education Commission of the Caribbean Associations of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) received some financial assistance from the Canadian Sport Development Programme (CSDP) for this workshop which was successfully executed by CXC Convener, Dr Joyce Graham Royal of Jamaica assisted by Mr. Nicholas Fraser from Guyana and Mr Orson James from Antigua.
The objective of the workshop was to provide some level of awareness of the new information on the changed syllabus to P.E. curriculum coordinators, supervisors and teachers; to provide opportunities for guidance on the strategies for marking the School Based Assessments (SBAs) and to explain and demonstrate the standard to be applied for marking and evaluating P.E. practical skills.
Twenty Eight persons from 13 Caribbean Islands participated in addition to 11 P.E. Teachers from Antigua.
