Students Shine at the Festival of Arts

Festival of Arts has become a part of primary and high school tradition. For years, students have been showcasing their talents through dance, song, and drama at the district and national levels and every year it seems to keep getting better. Since Monday the best of the best from the districts are putting their skills on the stage. We stopped in at the Bliss where we spoke with Leroy Green who says that the students have really outdone themselves with technique and creativity.

“The Festival has been on for about a month in all the six districts of Belize and what is happening here at the Bliss, the outstanding items from each district is being showcased. I have been amazed at the creativity that we are seeing and because of the workshop that was carried out by the Ministry has really paid off; the teachers are putting into effect what they have been taught. We have a wonderful display of items on. This morning we are featuring items from the Corozal and part of the Cayo Districts. They were supposed to be outstanding items and so far there have been ten items on stage and not one of them does not befit being here on stage this morning. They are wonderful, wonderful items. The level of the performances definitely shows that they have been enhanced.”

“Ok, so right now it is the best of the best; when does it finish?”

“It ends Thursday, but that’s the primary school part because Thursday night it will be the high school when three items from all the six districts will be competing to see who is the championship for the high school festival arts.
