It’s Saturday, January 20 and pupils from Rosary Boys’ RC are practising for judging last Friday (January 26) at the school compound, Port of Spain. Their quest to reach the Junior Panorama finals February 4 at the Queen’s Park Savannah began last September with novice players and some who participated in 2017 practising Wednesdays and Fridays for one and a half hours practising; and Saturdays for three hours.
The school is trying to earn a place after a miserable debut in 2017 when the band was eliminated from the finals. Twenty-six primary school bands, including combined schools, were registered to participate in the Panorama.
