?IT WAS CELEBRATION time for the students of St Leonard’s Boys’ Secondary School yesterday.
The students of the Richmond Gap, St Michael school took to the streets of the school’s immediate surroundings to participate in a victory parade to celebrate the school’s achievements for the school year so far.
Carrying placards which highlighted their achievements and showing off trophies, the students chanted, laughed, sang and danced to the sounds of drums. Residents came out of their houses, while motorists stopped their vehicles to either clap or shout words of encouragement to the students.
Senior teacher and coordinator of the event, Winston Cumberbatch, told the MIDWEEK NATION that the school’s board of management and teachers were “really proud of our students because for a school to be achieving across the board in the top three in so many different areas has to mean something”.
 “The school won Best Choir and Best New Artiste awards at the Barbados Music Awards. We won a bronze in drama at the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts and we placed first in the first round stage of the Junior Duelling Chefs competition, among other tremendous achievements,” Cumberbatch said.
Principal Joseph King said that his students were deserving of the parade and more achievements were yet to come
