The competition started in earnest with recitals from a total of 15 students from standard 1, 2 and 3.
It was evident that the students had put much effort into learning and preparing for the competition.
Before the announcement of winners by Committee Chair Dir Wendy, Judge Candace Basdeo gave the students some feedback about their exceptional performances and encouraged them to participate in extracurricular activities which will aid them to become positive contributors to their community.
All participants received Book Vouchers(Ishmael Khan) and certificates, and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd winners received trophy prizes.
Special thanks to Rtn Miranda Ramjattan for designing the Certificates, Dir Andrea for organising the trophies and all committee members especially Committee Chair Wendy Joseph for coordinating the necessary arrangements.
Thanks to all who were present and those who couldn't make it but still supported. Through everyone’s varied contributions we managed to make this;
