The decision has been taken to cancel the 2015 Independence Athletics Meets for schools.
This is in keeping with the overall decision to forego a number of activities which form part of Dominica’s observance of its independence anniversary as a result of the devastation caused by Tropical Storm Erika.
The annual independence meets for primary and secondary schools are part of the Calendar of Activities for the Independence Celebrations.
The Sports Division stands in solidarity with the rest of Dominica and is committed to the rebuilding efforts to restore our beloved country to normalcy.
In light of the rebuilding process, the Division will undertake some strict prioritization of its activities with the view of responding to the rebuilding needs of our country. This will result in a few adjustments made to a number of our planned programmes.
The Sports Division extends sympathies to all those who have been affected by Tropical Storm Erika and looks forward to continuing to play its part in the rebuilding process.
