Black History Month is celebrated in February in Barbuda. On Friday 24 February the Young Leaders of Sir McChesney George Secondary School organised a concert with each class commemorating black heroes. Mrs Juliet Ohaegbulan and Form 3 explained traditional marriage ceremonies in Nigeria, with Calsey Beazer and Neil Jerrick playing the roles of bride and groom. The performance finished with a traditional dance accompanied by the playing of an African drum. Teachers, Mrs Ohaegbulan and Mrs Keizer, participated in the dance to loud acclaim.
Both Holy Trinity School and Sir McChesney George will be holding hair braiding competitions; Holy Trinity on Monday 27 when they will present the medals for sports day, and Sir McChesney George on Tuesday 28 February.
