St. Kitts: Coaches rolling out new physical, health education curriculum

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts — Coaches from the Department of Sports and others that work within the primary school system are learning more about a new curriculum guiding health and wellness education.

Michelle Sutton, Health and Wellness Coordinator in the Ministry of Education, shared information with about 30 coaches attending a two-day workshop at the Media Centre at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium. The workshop organised by the Ministry of Sports, began on September 8.

The new curriculum was developed by the Ministry of Education as a core component of the Education Sector Plan 2017-2021. The component, called Physical and Health Education, emphasises children developing and leading healthy lifestyles. It was designed to cover the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, but is being piloted at the primary level.
