The Convent High School has excelled once again at the annual Schools' Arts Festival! It is the first year we have participated in all the categories of the Arts Festival and we did exceptionally well.


The event commenced on Tuesday 12th with twelve choirs and thirteen soloists competing against each other. The CHS’ choir acquired a gold medal and out shined all the other schools with our soulful  rendition ‘African Spirituals’ . Janae Jackson made us proud at the Convent High when she brought home a gold medal by singing ‘My Redeemer Lives’  with such spiritual conviction.

On Wednesday the Speech Chorale and members of the Music Band participated in the their respective art forms and emerged with gold medals in both. The Speech Chorale recited a thought provoking piece portraying the dangers of televisons and the benefits of reading. The Music Band performed a romantic spanish instrumental. Both groups performed to their absolute best and represented the CHS to the fullest.

On Thursday the Drama club obtained a bronze medal when they put on a play which was packed with suspense. The plot of the play was about a young man,Kris, who brought his girlfriend home to his father; only to find out that his father had raped his girlfriend when she was young.

On that same day, Rohini James submitted two amazing pieces of art and won silver medals for both.

On the last day of the School’s Arts Festival the Convent High School Dance Troup had no choice but to leave a mark on the 2013 Visual Arts Festival with a thought provoking dance called the ‘Enslavement and Emancipation of Dance’. The  gold winning performance left a lasting impression.


Our participation in this years School’s arts Festival shows the diversity of talent at the CHS. It shows that the students as well as the staff live out our motto “Hard work and Effort conquers all”. Without the dedication of teachers like Miss Lander, Miss Lewis, Miss St. Hilaire, Miss Nation and the Staff of the Convent High School who guided us, the students we would not have succeed. Obviously we the students ‘big up’ ourselves for the time and dedication we put in. Congradulations! We truly deserved it.
