The other finalists in the grade 5 competition were Owani Adams of the Chateaubelair Methodist School, Terika Alexander of the Belair Government, Allena Hazell of the Bequia Anglican Primary School, Richard John of the Argyle Roman Catholic School and Darrianne Sergeant of the Barrouallie Government School.

The Finals took place on the 3rd November, 2007, at the Methodist Church Hall in Kingstown. This year, the LEO club sought to raise awareness in the primary schools of the importance of “Conserving Our Wildlife”. The topics for the reading passages focused on aspects of this country’s wildlife, including our National Bird and Leather-back Turtles.

The competition was jointly sponsored by The Mustique Company and VINLEC.
