A variety of agricultural produce and locally manufactured products were wonderfully exhibited at the Girls’ High School last Friday afternoon as the school held its annual harvest and thanksgiving ceremony.

The ceremony began with the rendition of the National Anthem by the GHS steel band, followed by the opening prayer by Mauvreen Adams and the welcome and opening remarks by Bronty Williams.{{more}}

The ceremony also saw a number of cultural performances and the presentation of food items to guests.

Among the cultural presentations was the performance of a folk song by third-form students, a poem by Jordana Laborde and a dance by student Shamora Scott.

The school’s headmistress, Andrea Keizer-Bowman, delivered the World Food Day Message and announced the pledges by various classes which amounted to $2,849.41. That sum was donated to the Children Welfare Fund by the school’s Headgirl, Marsha-Ann Cadougan.

Luella Jackson of the Children Welfare Committee, on receiving the donation, expressed gratitude to the Girls’ High School. She said the donation will be distributed to less fortunate children at the end of this year. She said last year some $20,000 was distributed.

The ceremony ended with the singing of the school song, “Per Adua Ad Alta”.

The ceremony was attended by some former GHS principals, past students and other invited guests.
