Festival blues for some juniors


Share post:

A NUMBER of youngsters would love to participate in the Scotiabank Junior Monarch competition but sometimes find themselves without songs.

That’s because of broken promises by some songwriters, including teachers. This situation often leaves the children broken and in tears.
