Young Chutney Soca artistes honoured

Young and as­pir­ing Chut­ney So­ca artiste have been told now is the time to hold per­sons in high of­fice, in­clud­ing or­gan­is­ers and stake­hold­ers ac­count­able for their ac­tions.

This came as teach­ers protest­ed yes­ter­day at the Bri­an Lara Prom­e­nade for the de­lay salary nega­tion and forced a low turn out of teacher sup­port at the School’s In­tel­lec­tu­al Na­tion­al Car­ni­val Chut­ney So­ca Monarch (SINCC­SM) prize-giv­ing func­tions at the NCC VIP Lounge, Queen’s Park Sa­van­nah in Port of Spain.

Vice pres­i­dent of the Tas­sa As­so­ci­a­tion of Trinidad and To­ba­go Wen­dell Ever­s­ley said it is a usu­al trend for teach­ers to be ab­sent from the class­room to protest of bet­ter wages, but at no time, pupils protest.

In his re­marks, Ever­s­ley said it is time ed­u­ca­tors ac­count and pupils.

“Teach­ers strik­ing for bet­ter wages, you don’t hear about school chil­dren strik­ing, and I think one day the school chil­dren should strike to make teach­ers ac­count­able. They want to blame the chil­dren for some of the prob­lems that tak­ing place in the schools to­day. I want you to start hold­ing per­sons in high of­fices to ac­count to you all,” Ever­s­ley said.

Ever­s­ley al­so called on the gov­er­nor of cul­ture un­der Youth Gov­ern­ment Bran­don Val­ley to be held make rep­re­sen­ta­tion for the artiste to the head of state in­di­cat­ing that SINCC­SM is do­ing a good job and to in­clude spe­cial prizes for the ju­niors and se­niors.

Al­so cog­nizant of the ef­forts made by the pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary school pupils achieve­ments were Cur­ricu­lum Co­or­di­na­tor for Vi­su­al and Per­form­ing Art in the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion Marce­line Pe­ters who called on pupils to be­lieve in them­selves. She urged them to look back at their per­for­mances last Car­ni­val and finds ways to bet­ter their skills.

Avin­d­ha Singh of Tamana Hin­du Pri­ma­ry School and Mack­hady­on Charles of Mir­a­cle Min­istries High School cupped the pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary school chal­lenges tro­phies re­spec­tive­ly.

Singh al­so won the most orig­i­nal melody in the pri­ma­ry school cat­e­go­ry. Dabria Bap­tiste won the spe­cial cat­e­go­ry for best lyrics and the peo­ple’s choice went to Leonidus Sam­my.

In the sec­ondary school cat­e­go­ry, Charles won the peo­ple’s choice and best lyrics went to Bethany Light­bourne while the most orig­i­nal melody was award­ed to Adana Dar­d­aine.
