Friday, October 16 was a day which will be remembered with joy and gratitude by the Acting Principal Maria Daly-Worrell, staff, and pupils of Siparia Boys’ RC School.
It was on that day former student, Machel Montano returned to “give back” to the institution where he obtained his primary school education. It is also where his foray into the world of Calypso and Soca began.
While in the Second-Year class, he was asked by the teacher Catherine Teelucksingh if he would sing a Calypso for a school competition. He agreed, sang and won the competition, earning a whopping $20 with half of it being shared among his backup singers.
