Monday, September 26th, 2016
Since they began participating, San Pedro High School students have excelled in the annual Sagicor Visionary Challenge. In March of 2016, team Papaya Power took the runner up prize with their Papaya Leaf Tea. On Thursday, September 22nd, representatives of Sagicor presented SPHS with their second place prize.
During a short ceremony at the school’s auditorium, Sagicor marketing manager Marlene Chin of Trinidad and Tobago handed over the prize to the winners. Among the gifts was a $2,000USD check for the school, and $8000BZ worth of lab equipment, including a set of vernier caulipers with 18 apps, one physics kit and chemistry and biology kits. Chin commended the school and students, as they have been showing remarkable success in the past three years.
Vice Principal Conchita Flota thanked Sagicor for the opportunity to participate in the challenge, and congratulated the participating teams that have exalted the name of the school in the educational competition. SPHS is ready to represent in the upcoming challenge, with three teams taking part to try and bring the first prize to La Isla Bonita!
Congratulations team Papaya Power, on a job well done!
