Inter-Primary Championships Meet Director, Mr. Dean Greenaway said, “Digicel is making this possible at a time when local track and field fans log into competitions around the world to see how our athletes are performing in competitions but haven’t been able to do the same at home.”

He added, “Whether in the stadium, in the office or anywhere in the world, alumni of the various schools or track and field fans in general will have the ability to follow the results after each event and keep abreast of the competition score.”

The Inter Primary Championships A Division competition will be on Thursday, March 10 and the Inter Primary Championships B Division will be on Friday, March 10, with the events commencing at 10:00 a.m. on both days after the march pass at 9:00 a.m.
