Georgetown takes Rotaract Spelling B


Georgetown Government School is the Courts Sponsored Rotaract Club Spelling B 2007 Champions.

Joszen Horne and Kaela Barette put on an impressive performance to knock out their competitors from the Lodge Village, Cane End, Barrouallie, Colonarie, Rose Hall and Calliaqua Primary schools to claim the top spot as their own.{{more}}

It was, however, a tough fight to the top for the Georgetown champions, as the Calliaqua Anglican and Barrouallie Government Schools were right on their heels. Only ten points separated those schools from the Champion’s position, and their efforts claimed them a joint second place position.

The Georgetown Government School for its winning performance was awarded a Dell Lap Top Computer and HP Printer with scanner and photocopier capability. Participating students were also awarded gift packages containing school supplies and MP3 players. The prizes were donated by Courts and were handed over to the students at the Courts Kingstown branch on Tuesday, 27th November, by Edward Newman, Courts’ General Manager.

Courts Marketing Officer Alexis Harry said “Development of Education is very important to Courts – it is one of the key areas of focus in our sponsorship guidelines. We have demonstrated our commitment to education with the FREE Books for School Campaign in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, and over the years we have assisted many schools throuhout the island.”
