Several activities including sporting event on the cards
The Guyana Chapter of the JC Chandisingh Secondary School Grads Association is busy putting the final touches on what is expected to be a truly grand reunion to be held on August 4, 5, and 7 on the Corentyne. After months of intense planning and hard work, the excitement of the grads to soon being able to “meet, greet, and be sweet” is understandable.
Grads who have not yet obtained their tickets should do so at their earliest opportunity.
The three-day event will get started on Friday, August 4 with a flag-raising ceremony on the school ground and then a procession to the Rose Hall Town cemetery where the grads will lay flowers at the graveside of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph and Lillian Chandisingh.
The fun and games will then begin at 10:00am at the Area H Ground. The JCCSS games master Mr. David Brigbhukan has arranged a limited-overs cricket match between JC grads and grads of Corentyne Comprehensive Secondary School. There will be another match involving JC overseas grads and JC local grads. Football and rugby tournaments are also expected to draw a huge crowd. Novelty events will include sack race, late for school race, lime and spoon, 100m, 4x100m relay, watermelon eating race, enter hole, frisbee throwing, and board games (Chess, Draughts, Scrabble). Grads will also be given a chance to fly a mini drone. A dancing contest will bring the day’s events to a close. Some grads are already referring to the day’s action as a mini-Olympics.
The next day, Saturday, August 5 will be the Dinner and Dance at the St. Francis Hall starting at 4:00pm. Grads are really looking forward to this event because, until now, all the big JC reunions have been done in New York and Toronto.
An important part of the night’s proceedings will be the recognition of teachers, athletes, and students who have performed with distinction.
Saturday’s dinner and dance will not be the end of the Reunion. There will be a Big Lime on the grounds of the Kennard’s Memorial Turf Club in Bush Lot Farm on Monday, August 7. Grads will chill out listening to music, playing softball cricket, and do an old-fashioned bush cook.
To stage an event of this magnitude required many months of planning and hard work. Some of the leading planners are Frank Sanichara, Sarah Foo, Rene Ramdin, Rihanna Ameir, Tiffania Williams, and Syd Latchana.
