On Monday October 10th, the Convent High School once again launched the 2nd annual under 15 Netball tournament in the school’s auditorium.


This tournament had been organized in order to fulfill the requirements of the School-Based Assessment (SBA) for the CSEC Examinations as well as to raise the interest of young women in the sport of netball.  The SBA required that students would plan and execute a sporting event; therefore, the students chose to do a netball competition.  These students had different roles to execute, for example, coaches, scorers, umpires, and executive members of the association.  The competition is run using the rules and regulations of the Secondary Schools Netball Competitions organized by the Sports Division.  Teams had to fill in a registration form and pay a registration fee of $30 to assist in running the competition.


The ceremony was carried live by Kairi Fm Radio and SAT Telecommunications. Additionally, Marpin Telecommunications had it recorded to be carried as a news item.


There were a few invited guests namely, Mrs Justina Charles Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, and Mr Yeudi John, representative for the Sports Divison.


Ms Gem Eloi a Physical Education teacher at the Convent High School who will also be writing the CSEC Physical Education exam gave the welcome remarks while Ms Andrea Seaman, lead in prayer.  The Vote of thanks was done by Ms Daisy Douglas Murdock, fifth form Physical Education student, who is the Technical Manager in the SBA project.


Other students involved in the afternoon’s ceremony were: Ms Josephine Austrie, Chairperson of the ceremony and also the secretary in the SBA project, Ms Kadisha Evans, Team Manager, and Ms Kelisha George, Coach.


All in all, the students ensured that the ceremony was successful.
