Schools feel the pride
SCHOOLS ACROSS BARBADOS were caught up in the spirit of Independence yesterday.
Belmont Primary School was transformed into a mini centre of creativity, culture and performing arts during Independence celebrations.
The event entitled Belmont Independence Festival For Creative Arts (BIFCA) allowed students to showcase their talents via visual arts, literature, culinary arts, singing and drama, among others. One classroom displayed paintings, poems and hand-made craft by the students from Reception to Class 4, while the doors depicted a theme What Barbados Means To Me.
Chairperson of the cultural committee, Allison Bend, said the school, which entered the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) culinary competition for the first time this year as the Belmont Bees, was inspired by the format of that festival. (LT/MR)
