Students at Eagle Hall Primary were entertained by veteran entertainers as well as some of the newer faces from this year’s Pic-O-De-Crop competition.
Students, armed with posters of The Mighty Grynner, Richard Stoute, Jude Clarke and Doyenne, observed the theme Give Thanks as a part of their celebrations for the 52nd year of independence.
The students and staff members at the school could not get enough of Grynner as they sang and danced to his classics such as Mr T, Turn Up The Speaker and We Want More. Not to be left out was the school Principal, Orlando Jones, who joined The Mighty Grynner on stage for a moment to get in on his dance moves.
Next on stage was Richard Stoute who, dressed in a blue and yellow suit, delivered a remake of the song I’m Leaving.
Doyenne, a two-time Junior Monarch Winner, delivered her song Tribute To The Youth.
But the person the students literally did not want to leave as they held his hands and feet was Jude Clarke. He got the children to sing and dance along to the refrain ‘We in this thing together’.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the performances and closing out the afternoon was Richard Stoute who sang Goodbye Now My Bajan Girl.
There were also old Barbadian artifacts on display and local treats such as fishcakes and sugar cakes. (LG)
