Cayman Prep primary division has used its melodious voices to win a Christmas carolling competition at Camana Bay.
An arrangement of “Carol of the Bells”, sung in two parts, won the school choir top place and a vastly decorated 6-foot Christmas tree with multicoloured lights. The tree will be put on display at the school.
The competition was the launch of Cayman International School and Camana Bay’s Festival of the Trees fundraising event.
Cayman Prep music teacher Katie Bruce was just as excited about winning the tree as the students. “We just aimed to make it the best performance that we could and we were really surprised to win,” she said. “The students are all excited about winning and each are coming up with suggestions of where it should be placed at the school.”
Ms Bruce said the tree will be delivered to the school in about a week or two.
Cayman Prep competed with Cayman International School, which took second place, and Montessori by the Sea, took third place.
Seated among beautifully decorated trees with Christmas carols played softly in the background, parents of students waited in anticipation for the winner to be announced.
Attending the event for the first time, Cabinet minister Mark Scotland voiced his appreciation of the event. He also praised Cayman International School on its fundraising efforts toward environmental and marine conservation.
