Once again the Portsmouth Secondary School (PSS) has claimed the title of the Creole Choral Speech Competition winners, at the event which took place on Wednesday at the Arawak House of Culture.

The school won the competition in 2014.

The school took home $1,000 as the winning prize.

Second place and EC$700 went to the Convent High School (CHS), while the St. Martin Secondary School (SMSS) came in the third position and received EC$500.

Each winning school won trophies and medals for participating students.

A total of five schools participated in the event.

Teacher at the PSS, Luanne Mitchell, said that she believes it is the students love for choral speech along with their determination that led them to the trophy.

“The preparation for the competition was a lot of work, it was tiring, it was overwhelming and I believe the students really gave their best,” Mitchell stated. “I am elated, I am speechless, but I am also thankful, first of all to God for giving us that win. And I am honoured to be working with this wonderful bunch of students.”

The students who participated are from forms 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Creole Choral Speech Competition forms part of the island’s celebration of Independence.

    Congrats PSS on your win, and to you my friend lulu (Ms. Mitchel), but on another note it is interested that in a creole choral speech competition that it is mostly schools from and around Roseau who are in the tops; the schools where the often so-called non-creole speakers attend. I would love to see my former high school Pierre Charles Secondary schools and alike do much better in such a competition, Creole is in our bones. We can win that trophy, don’t you think?
