      The annual school concert finally manage to be shown on Tuesday 15th December, after being delayed by a fishing day the previous day, at which time the whole community was involved in some way or another.

      The concert "Beauty and the Beast" was witty and well accepted by all who attended, there was also a number of songs by various children such as "Alley-Alley -O" "Wealthy Merchant", "Home for Good", "The Yawning Man", "Nothing", "Lets all have a Party", then ending with the whole school singing "Lets have a Party".

      After the concert had ended, the Education Adviser Jim Kerr gave a few words, as is the island custom, where he congratulated the children and all those involved for making the evening special. He also expressed special thanks to Caroline Rogers who would be retiring as a teacher in May 2010, for all she had contributed to the school in the last +-30 years, as this concert would be her last. He also wished Maria Swain a trainee teacher for 9 years, who would be moving to the PWD as a secretary in the New Year.

      The evening ended by the school and those attending singing the national anthem
