San Fernando ASJA Primary school scored a double victory in the Oilfield Workers Trade Union (OWTU) 40th Labour Day Quiz and Poster Competitions, winning both competitions and capturing the OWTU’s 2018 Challenge Trophy.

At the nail-biting finish on Wednesday evening, the ASJA Primary competitors dethroned reigning champions San Fernando TML. The two schools also faced each other in the 2017 finals, but the results were reversed at that time.

Sallysha Mohammed, one of the teachers who trained the ASJA students, said their double victory after approximately 10 years in the competition is a testimony of the rewards hard work can bring.

Mohammed said after the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination which they all wrote, while other children were having fun, competitors Suriya Mohammed , Amrika Ramlogan and Ismaeel Chin Wing all got down to work to study for this competition.

A total of 31 schools from the Victoria and St Patrick Educational districts, participated in the competition. The quiz had, as its theme, 'Celebrating our heroes and their contribution to the development of TT.'

The theme for the poster competition was 'The hero in me and my vision of a better TT.'

Crystal Beharrylal of San Fernando ASJA Primary was the poster competition winner.

At the finals, the OWTU also honoured two of their selected heroes, para Olympian Shanntol Ince and Angelo Bissessarsingh, historian and educator (Posthumously). One of the OWTU’s veteran and patriot Glen Dottin was also honoured for faithfully marking the OWTU’s poster competition over the years.
