The CHS Band – A New Image from 2014

Last Updated: Friday, 11 July 2014 Published: Thursday, 10 July 2014 Written by Huguette St. Hilaire

The 2014 Prize Giving Ceremony held on July 2nd  2014, was breaking ground for the 'New Image' School Band of CHS.  Members of the School Band, using their new Brass and Woodwind instruments (received from the Kosowan/Townsed – Canadian donation); were able to WOW their counterparts with a mighty rendition of  'DYNAMITE'  by Taio Cruz.

Since receiving the new set of instruments, the Music Band has been trying to make a difference in musical presentations for outdoor activities.  The band also made a great impression when it participated in the Combined Schools Bandorama, held at the Arawak House of Culture in October and more recently, they played the Fanfare and National Anthem at the School's graduation ceremony on June 26th.  I want to congratulate these students, most of whom are new to playing.

The following students were recognized with Certificates and some long awaited badges for their
commitment and hard work.
