The school, represented by Kitson Deane and Chazaul Walker, outlasted six other secondary schools to come out in front of the club’s seventh hosting of the competition, which took place on April 22, 2010, at the Peace Memorial Hall in Kingstown.

Accumulating 250 points after seven rounds of competition, the Grammar School edged out the Barrouallie Secondary School into second place with 225 points. The St. Martin’s Secondary School placed third with 200 points and the Dr. J.P Eustace Memorial Secondary placed fourth with 175 points.

The other competing schools were the Adelphi Secondary, Girls’ High School and the Thomas Saunders Secondary.

Despite a low turnout of supporters, the students engaged in a keenly contested competition, fielding questions from categories such as political history, local expressions, historic sites festival, and archeology.

In the end, Walker and Dean came out victorious, taking with them a trophy, medals and other prizes.

Each student received a certificate of participation, while students and schools in the top three positions were presented with books, book vouchers, MP3 players, and flash drives, which were donated by the National Commercial Bank, Gaymes Bookstore, The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Teachers’ Credit Union.

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Heritage Club was formed 12 years ago, with the competition being held for the 7th time this year.(JJ)
