With a brilliant rendition of Sally Albrecht’s Friends On Our Left, and William Barnes’ Linden Lea, the school’s mixed choir cruised home to a victory which earned them individual prizes and musical instruments for their school. Halifield Secondary School, Maryland, came second, while Holy Child College, Obalende, emerged third.
Special guest of honour at the event and wife of the Lagos State Governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode, commended the NNPC/SNEPCo initiative noting that beyond the competition was the opportunity to groom songsters who combine their musical talent with education.
“In 14 years since the programme began, many young talents have been discovered, raised and nurtured to stardom,” the first lady, represented by Mrs. Mrs Jumoke Adeyemi , charged the students. “I urge all of you children to invest your time wisely in useful and productive engagements like music.”
