Winning in five of the eight categories, Woodroffe House racked up a total of 581 points for their performances. Following was Pigott House with 501 points, while Jackson House settled for third with 480 points.

The third annual competition was held at the Peace Memorial Hall on Wednesday, November 11, 2009, under the theme “Music in Me.”

The competition featured musical performances which included solos, choir performances and instrumental performances.

The students displayed talent and creativity in their performances, while the assembly of students roared with gratitude, supporting their respective houses.

One of the popular items was the Woodroofe House choir’s rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, in which the students decorated the stage with two dimensional animal cut outs. Other performances in that category saw students from Pigott and Jackson houses singing with animal-like facial decorations, while Pigott House students swayed and sang around a ‘sleeping lion’.

During the competition, students also paid tribute to Bishop Leopold Friday who was serenaded with the “Happy Birthday” song as it was his birthday. The music day competition was also attended by past principal Joy Cato and members of the Board of the school.(OS)
