St Benedict’s College hosted its annual school concert on Tuesday, November 5 and Wednesday 6, ‘The Heart of a Man’ at the Naparima Bowl, San Fernando. The concert’s theme highlighted the manner in which society determines the role of a man and the emotional roller coaster a young man faces. This, with contributing factors, leads him to make life-altering decisions.
The story pivots on societal acceptance, peer pressure, love, and the emotions which emerge from being in a divorced family. The concert featured a cast of talented St Benedict’s College students and teachers under the direction of the school’s VAPA department, led by Jill-Ann Walters, Keegan Miguel and Kimberly Jones.
The concert was in aid of the school’s building fund for the refurbishment of infrastructure in the school. The concert also plays a key role in the grading of students in their end-of-term projects and exams, and provides an opportunity to train students in theatre and stage management, and production development.
