Triple C held its annual fair Saturday, 8 April, the first one back in the school’s original premises since Hurricane Ivan.
As usual, the biggest money earner was the king and queen contest, where the boy and girl who collect the most donations are crowned. This year’s contest brought in $18,570.41.
In addition, ticket sales for all the food and games at the fair earned a little more than $5,000, explained Marjorie Ebanks, principal of Triple C.
She said the money will be used for the middle school science lab, to purchase a school bus, and to set up computer centres in some of the classrooms.
‘It’s the most we’ve ever gotten in the king and queen contest and therefore the most we’ve gotten overall.
‘It was a very exciting day. We had good participation from students and parents, both elementary and secondary.
‘I want to thank the PTA and its president Thora Crighton-Bodden. They did a marvellous job of organising everything,’ Mrs. Ebanks said.
