In observance of September 2023 Basic Education and Literacy Month, The Rotary club of Princes Town partnered with the principal and teachers of the Princes Town Presbyterian School No.2 to host their Poetry, Recitation and Choral speaking competition at the school's compound.
Students from first year to standard three took part in the recitation competition and the students in standards 4 and 5 took part in the class choral speaking competition. Our club sponsored trophies for the winners and participative medals for all students. Our Director Service Projects Miranda Ramjattan was assisted by Secretary Wendy Joseph and Past President Capildeo Beharry. Our members assisted the teachers in judging the students performances and were in audience during their class recitals and displays. In her address to the students Director Miranda urged students to continue on their educational path and to foster reading, poetry and literature as their foundation to higher learning later on. She stated that the month of September 2023 was the rotary monthly theme of Basic Education and Literacy, however in order to work with the students our club decided to host this project in the month of October.
Principal Sophia Beepath-Nathai in her address thanked members of the Rotary Club of Princes Town for their contribution to the event at the school and expressed her gratitude for their continued support.
Club President Andrea Bhagwandeen has expressed her thanks to all club members, teachers and students who took part in this event.
