Students are gearing up for the Live Love Life youth talent competition this Sunday.
The event has been arranged by the Ministry of National Security, to raise awareness about the importance of addressing violence and antisocial behaviour.
Young people will be encouraged to express themselves through spoken word, rap or song, with the theme of Stop the Violence.
National security minister Wayne Caines said: “We are determined to prevent young people from joining gangs and engaging in antisocial behaviour and so I am very excited about the level of interest and participation of our young people in this event.
“This is the first event of its kind, and it’s designed to inspire our youth to become agents of change by having them use their talents and creativity to promote a message of non-violence in our community.”
Participating schools include Somerset Primary, West End Primary, Paget Primary, Purvis Primary,
Northlands Primary, Elliot Primary, East End Primary, Harrington Sound Primary, Dellwood Middle School and CedarBridge Academy
The event takes place at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts from 7pm.
