Sport on the Move Gozo, has ended the winter season, following 26 weeks of sport organised for Gozitan children.
The Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana was present for the final day to show her appreciation to all those who attended through the scheme offered by the Ministry for Gozo.
Dr Caruana presented certificates to about 350 children – a record number for Gozo – who attended the weekly activities organised for them by the Gozo Sports Board, with the collaboration of Sport Malta.
The Ministry for Gozo, in a statement said, that this record number was “undoubtedly down to the fact that cost of the On the Move programme was subsidised by the Ministry, with free transportation also offered from Gozo villages.”
Sports on the Move children in Gozo also participated in the Special Olympics and they were given a medal of recognition by Minister Caruana.
Meanwhile the Minister announced that in the coming days another subsidised scheme of Sport on the Move Gozo will be announced by the Ministry for Gozo, called – Summer on the Move.
