    Kardisha is so beautiful….leave the person daughter alone…her synthetic hair will not dictate her personality…..talking about trivial nonsense……hair will not determine wether one will engage in premaretal sex……stupid backward people

      Well done Kardisha, from your picture, you are such a beautiful young lady. Congratulation on your reign little one. Your hair can’t and won’t define who you are in the future. So enjoy your reign. Stop those petty comments whoever you are. Get with the programme.

    By looking at the first picture I could tell something was not right but by the second one with the pink lipstick I got it. I thought I was being a bit hard in my thinking, but reading the comments I tend to agree with some of them. The children are cute, no doubt, but we are sending mixed messages. Hair braided with bows and clips with pink lipstick. The hair do’s and jewelry do not say children or princesses. Please, let children be children. On person had it right,a group picture would have been better. Come on organisers, you all can do better. I am not criticising the girls just calling a spade a spade as I see it.

    these girls are beautiful and there is nothing wrong in them wearing lipstick…

    they are not your kids….mind your business… i hope your girls will turn out to self respecting individuals, individuals who are caring and an compassionate towards others..worry about your kids….and leave people children alone……………………

    They are beautiful indeed. I agree that it’s a bitmuch for princess show, before it used to be little girls looking like little girls in party dresses. Why people want to dress up little girls like little women beats me. This is not being negative it is true and it is something we have to be mindful of.

    Can’t believe the negativity…they are all beautiful and properly attired…. the little makeup is fine….hello don’t you remember dressing up as a kid????? Let’s just support them and wish them the best. Its a half an hour drive to town from Castle Bruce. As for the location of the show, we do not know if the venue is sponsored by the owner…. A drive to Roseau from CB is not that hard, people will come and support their own, doh hurt your head.

    Why the grandbay student have false hair, that is the only thing i did not like to see. such a young little princess pretty very, yet shes being taught to not appreciate what she have a black hair and be proud parents be VERY CAREFUL. not evverything we as adults do we need to pass on to our young ones especially at a tender age.

    Renelle coipel of Castle Bruce is the only Princess all the others looks like Queens. Their make up and hair style do not looks like children.

    Before even seeing the childs name or where she was from I imediately thought…..Grandbay! Check out the jewelry and the hair piece! Seriouly she looks cliche. She’s a beautiful little princess nonetheless.

    i wonder if they,ll be unfair to the children like last year. i hope they get good judges and not friends of the participants people to come judge because they come with their princess in mind.. i don,t believe schools from the rural areas should take part in this competition.. leave dem roseau pple ting for dem…

      So why did Salybia win last year? Its not a Roseau show at all. Those little girls just have to come and put their best foot forward. May the best school win.

  40. Huh!!
    November 29, 2012

    This is a princess show with children. There should be a stipulation; no make up and no false hair. Let the children be children.

    If you are introducing a group of girl for a pageant then you should have had a group picture on the front instead of an individual. This may be seen by the fans of the other girls as bias.

    With that said ALL of the contestants are beautiful. I hope you girls have a great show and gain from such an experience.
