out performance in Tarpum Bay at the competition held in early February, where they won the Primary School division. Principal, Vernita Thompson commented, saying, “A lot of parents were not able to get to Tarpum Bay, so we’ve brought the Junkanoo to them. We wanted to showcase

what we put on in Tarpum Bay to let them know why we deserved to be Eleuthera’s champions!” Ms. Thompson further explained that after the initial results of Junior Junkanoo were announced, they had lodged a formal protest for being placed in second position behind another primary school, which had not met the size criteria to be placed in their division. After consideration, the Junkanoo Committee judged in favor of their protest, and they were declared the Group A, Primary Division Winners.
