Success R.C. School Wins Morvant/Laventille Youth Games
On Wednesday July 5th, Angostura held its fourth installment of the Morvant/Laventille Youth Games at the Laventille Community Complex. Teams of 10 children from thirteen primary schools in the area competed in what was dubbed as the local Olympics, with each having to represent a different country by its colour, flag or march past presentation.
Points were awarded to the teams for participating in a range of sporting disciplines and fun activities. Success R.C. School was judged the overall winner, with 2nd place going to Hokett Baptist Primary School, and 3rd place went to Morvant New Government, who also won the March Past presentation. The top three teams were presented with cash prizes for their schools, along with LLB hampers and cases of LLB, who were the main sponsor of the event.
The company decided to host these games, in an attempt to encourage camaraderie among students of primary schools in the Laventille/Morvant region. To promote education through sport and culture and build teamwork. The children were made to adhere to some of the Olympic values of friendship, respect, solidarity and non-discrimination.
