Speaking at the opening of the event, Madam Enyonam Amafuga, Volta Regional Director of Education said physical education and sports remained important subjects that provided holistic intervention to developing the cognitive and the physical aspect of the body.

She said the pivot of every human development was anchored on healthy body therefore it was important to frequently engage in acts that could keep the body healthy.

Madam Amafuga underscored the need for everyone to take a brisk walk at least 30 minutes for three times in a week to keep the body healthy and to vitalize its work load without undue fatigue.

Madam Amafuga urged all the players and athletics to give off their best, comport themselves and to desist from immoral acts.

Mr Kofi Emmanuel Atiso, the Zonal Secretary urged the participating schools to exhibit high level of discipline during the one week period.

He also urged the players to exhibit best behavior on the field of play.
