Hair show, despite fire


Share post:

A GRASS FIRE outside the Christ Church Foundation School wall temporarily halted post-lunch activities at the school yesterday.
First and second formers had gathered for the fourth annual hair contest, when ash and smoke from a brush fire invaded the hall. The emergency bell rang soon after and the entire school was evacuated. Students, teachers and the judges for the competition assembled on the playing field next to the Christ Church cemetery.
School resumed when the fire and smoke had sufficiently died down but the competition was moved to the nearby Christ Church Parish Centre.
Featured speaker Dr Rosina Rowe told the students that fire was symbolic of getting rid of the old and making way for the new.
