One of the coordinators of the event, Yvette Herbert, told MiyVue.com that the event is a creative means of reinforcing specific values of the ARMOUR Programme and thought a pageant would be ideal.
“All primary schools should be going through the A.R.M.O.U.R behaviours introduced in the schools so that we can see some change in the students’ behaviour. We recognise the crime and the depleting of the morals and values and the guidance counsellors unit had to come up with something that we can use in order to reinforce positive behaviours so they came up with the ARMOUR programme. So for the entire year, we’ve been preaching and enforcing the ARMOUR behaviours in assemblies and finding creative ways to do it.
“So a committee of teachers came together and we decided what better way to reinforce it than by using culture, tradition, music etc. We decided to have the pageant.”
Herbert promised that the contestants would benefit from the educational and entertainment value of the event but promised the same for the patrons.
She said the curtains open at 7:00 p.m. and although all the tickets have been sold, persons who are desirous of attending, can do so and pay a $20 fee at the gate of the school’s compound.
MiyVue.com understands that artistes slated to perform at the event include Infamus, Rolhensha and Shakal and Fire.
