Initial discussions had been held between the Principal, Swami Aksharananda, and Mr Hing on introducing archery to the school in its ongoing National Development Program, in which Swamiji wholeheartedly agreed to have the sport introduced to the school.
At the gathering, students were informed of the school forming the next club for developing archers from the grassroots, to be able to eventually represent and compete locally, regionally or internationally with the ultimate goal of representing Guyana on the Olympic stage.
