The costumes were designed under the theme: “Folklores in Guyana”. Gyrating to the sounds of Soca music, the students made their way along the path as hundreds lined the streets to get a glimpse of the spectacle. At the MSC, the displays of cultural themes were judged based on their originality and how well they depicted the spirit of Mashramani. In the nursery category, Pine Street Nursery maintained its position with first place. Coomacka Nursery placed second while Republic Avenue Nursery secured third place. In the Primary category, Amelia’s Ward Primary gained first place with their costume depiction, “Mermadaleons in action”, while St Aidan’s Primary placed second and Watooka Day Primary School copped third place.last_img read more
