Girls and Boys Championships perennial challengers St. Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) got a splendid show last Friday when the Gleaner Champs 100 School Tour rolled into St. Elizabeth. Entertainment reigned supreme, as both students and staff displayed a lot of talent in song and dance.
Tour sponsors Grace-Kennedy, Victoria Mutual Building Society and LIME were a hit with the masses with their giveaways and interesting displays and booths, visited by hundreds of students and staff at the event.
Fresh reggae talent Kabaka and Mystic Roots brought a cultural vibe to STETHS, and the Shady Squad dancers “mashed up the place” doing their 9.58 dance, created in honour of Usain Bolt. Timberlee’s and Raine Seville’s performances caused a ruckus of excitement with a dance off at the end of their stint, and then Duane Stephenson calmed their fire with his plethora of hits including Cottage in Negril and August Town.
The tour continues this Friday, March 12 at Herbert Morrison Technical High and culminates on Friday, March 19 at Kingston College.
