PHILIPSBURG–The pre-St. Maarten’s Day Quiz hosted by Chuchubi Foundation can be considered a success for those who attended, according to a statement issued by the Foundation on Wednesday.
The quiz was dubbed educational and very informative. The Foundation was disappointed that only three schools participated, but hopes to get more schools on board for the next event.
Congratulations go out to the winners: Methodist Agogic Centre (MAC) Browlia Maillard Campus, which won a gift certificate of NAf. 1,000 with a memorial plaque; Sister Marie Laurence School, second place, which won a gift certificate of NAf. 500 also with a plaque; and Oranje School, third place, which won a gift certificate of US $200.
Each participant received a certificate of participation. The audience was also engaged in the questions and won prizes donated by Office World and St. Maarten bags made locally by Cheryl Dedier.
The Foundation thanked NAPA, Office World, Heavenly Water, Aki Supermarket, Fresh Pond Supermarket, APAS Services, ACE Hardware Store, Tropical Sail, Philipsburg Cultural Centre and all who in one way or another helped make this event a memorable one.
The organising committee also thanked especially the participating schools for preparing the children well and instilling courage in them to participate. “They were very brave and enthusiastic. They all did a good job,” it said in the release.
