Five sections for St Gabriel’s band
ST GABRIEL’S SCHOOL will be hitting The Big Screen for Junior Kadooment.
Designer and bandleader Renee Ratcliffe said the theme was chosen in tribute to “all of the movies that kids like”.
The sections are Frost, China, Amazon, The Bayou and Trouble. The band was launched at the Henry’s Lane, St Michael school.
“We usually aim for about 120 kids. We normally don’t do the sign-ups at the launch – which is what we have decided to do today – and we already have 56 kids signed up and that usually takes about a couple weeks to get that many kids to sign up,” she said, adding that Frost and Amazon were the most popular so far.
The ten-year-old band contributed part of the proceeds back to the costumes.
The veteran bandleader added that sponsorship has been hard in coming this year, but she was grateful for those who stuck through the hard times. (Green Bananas Media)
