The discipline, dedication, commitment and strong support systems surrounding each team has now resulted in these wins. I wish to sincerely thank and congratulate each player, arranger, conductor, parent, teacher and supporter who ensured that each band was able to deliver quality performances.
I thank Dr Rowley for his continued support of National Schools Panorama and at the Ministry; we will continue to produce excellent players of our National Instrument to ensure cultural preservation and appreciation.” The Ministry of Education continues with the Schools Carnival competitions within the coming weeks.
