Screen_Shot_2015-06-02_at_7.51.26_PMA few weeks ago, we brought you highlights of the first ever Teachers Festival of Arts where they presented to the public their talents in the form of skits, drama and dance.  And last week Friday, the winners of that event represented the district in Belize City. We are happy to report that the Orange Walk District did well as the San Francisco RC School took first place in dance at the national level. Today, we spoke with the team who told us about their winning 80’s Dance Mix performance…

PERCIVAL GIDEON – Teacher, Upper Division

“We had nobody to tell us how dance will go but we have very talented teacher here; first we have teacher Elizabeth, teacher Maria Pech, teacher Christianny, we have teacher Gilda who is not here and so we put our resources together and the other teacher love it, now the festival of arts came around in the month of May, a Teachers Festival Of Arts, and so other teacher said well why don’t you present your item, your dance and then one teacher pick it up and did the logistics and then we went ourselves into practice and then we went for the Teacher’s Festival of Arts and that was on May 30th and there we won the most outstanding dance there were 13 presentations and we won in the category of dance and we were told there that we could present the same item at the national level and we did that on May 29th and there we had 17 presentations and we all got the first prize, the cash prize.”



“I think that from time we got on stage the audience was pleading our presentation so I think it was well deserved first place.”



“This was a great experience for me and I even felt like a little child when I was up there and frightened when I saw that big stage but I think I would do it again.”

Maria Novelo - Reporter

“Usually the kids would present for you guys now it was a total role reversal, would you encourage more events like that?”

PERCIVAL GIDEON – Teacher, Upper Division

“Of course I would especially in November when we have our children’s day, it was our second presentation that we actually did for the children so yes I would encourage them to do things like these because we ourselves enjoyed it very much and so it was good.”

Another winning school worthy of mention is the Guinea Grass Pentecostal Primary who won third place in drama at the National level.
