The CARICOM Project was started in the early 80s. Magda Pollard and Carole Maison-Bishop were two of the persons who started this initiative which has grown over the years.

This year, full CARICOM Member States were featured again; three twin island republics, namely Antigua & Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Form 3C, which depicted the twin island republic of Antigua and Barbuda won the overall competition. The Oswald Parry Hall erupted with loud applause and jubilation at the announcement of the winners.
Form 3A, which covered St. Kitts and Nevis was judged the Best Stage Presentation. They were the first to present on stage and thrilled the audience with an exhilarating Carnival Opening scene.
Form 3B, did a good job at capturing the cultural and political history of their assigned country, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The presentations lasted throughout the day and the audience was thrilled at the displays.
The Students and Faculty of the Bishops' High School are to be commended for this excellent display of CARICOM Culture, and every effort is recommended to encourage them in these and other activities which they display with the same level of excellence.
