Cricket history could be added to CXC
The history of cricket as a subject could be added to the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Examinations Physical Education curriculum if the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has its way.
WICB Marketing and Communications Manager Carole Beckford says that the body wants to have the subject added, saying the intention is to have the younger generation understand how important the sport is to Caribbean unity.
“Physical Education is already on the CXC [Caribbean Examinations Council] Curriculum. Because of the strong history of cricket as a subject, we thought it would have been an important partnership with CXC to ensure that the history of West Indies Cricket is being carried on – that people understand how important it is, whether it’s social, business or political.
If a young student passes through the region and does Physical Education. They’ll understand not just the physical part of it, but the historical and the social context as well,” she said.
