STUDENTS AND STAFF of The Lester Vaughan School were in a celebratory mood yesterday.

After winning the boys’ title in this year’s Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletic Championships last month and placing fifth among the girls, their choir singing their way to the top spot among the secondary schools in the inaugural schools’ Music Festival, and some of their athletes representing Barbados in the CARIFTA Games, the Cane Garden, St Thomas school decided to share their achievements with the community and the rest of the country.

The sunny day started with a parade through the neighbouring communities of Cane Garden, Edgehill, Melrose, Arthurs Seat and Jackson which Principal, Captain Michael Boyce, told the WEEKEND NATION was “great”.

He continued: “There were other things to celebrate. Tristan Small was on the CARIFTA Chess team, Rashawn Sargeant took part in the Melanie Kristian Price 5K run, Axe Garrett took part in the Barbados Surfing Association school surfing championships open longboard, and placed first which placed Lester Vaughan School first overall.
