We are the champions!

Our talented and  hard working hockey team, who sweat it out twice weekly at the Woodbrook Youth Facility, far away from our school compound, finally saw their hard work pay off on Thursday 5th March 2015 when they were crowned champions of the Trinidad and Tobago Hockey Board’s Secondary Schools Outdoor Girls Premiership division. Going into the match, we were tied with Providence on seven points, with Holy Name Convent, the defending champions on six.  Our superior goal difference however meant all we needed to do was just to avoid defeat in our last match by four goals.

Our final game at the St. James Barracks, with the strong, determined girls of Woodbrook Secondary was an edgy, hard fought encounter with neither team able to penetrate the other's defensive wall until SJCPOS' senior national team player, Tamia Roach struck in the 25th minute. And try as they might, our cross town rivals were unable to match it as we were able to hold on to a narrow 1-0 victory, just enough to seal the coveted title. After the match, the team and the small group of proud parents and ecstatic supporters praised their efforts and especially, those of their brilliant coach, past SJCPOS alumni and past national team captain, Stacey Ann Siu Butt. Congrats, guys and keep shining!

Shubh Divali Everyone!

Divali2014-40

We come to the time of year students prepare for the school’s Divali Showcase which took place on Wednesday 22nd October, 2014. In the 2 short years I’ve been here at SJC (which sometimes can feel much longer) our Divali celebration has been something to look forward to.

This year the celebration took place between break in lunch (4th & 5th periods) instead of the last 2 periods before the end of school (7th & 8th periods) like it usually does. Some students felt that this would cause a rush during the activities, thus causing stress on the participants during an event that should be fun for all members of the school community. None the less, we still looked forward to what was in store.

During 4th and 5th period students and staff alike were allowed to go down to the courtyard to watch the Divali skit, dances, a musical performance and a favorite by many, the fashion show. All activities featured some of the many talented SJC students.

The Divali celebration doesn’t only allow staff and students a short break from the monotonous daily grind but also gives everyone a chance to learn a little more about Hindu culture which plays an important role in Trinidad and Tobago’s society.  Staff and students agree that the Divali Celebration is a good experience for the school community as it includes students of all religions and allows us to be exposed to a little bit of the Hindu culture.

All in all, the Divali celebration is always something to look forward to. It’s the time when the school community comes together to celebrate an important festival in our society. Another important point; Buss-Up-Shut is sold for lunch at the cafeteria on the day of the Divali celebration. So don’t forget to order early next year!
