The San Pedro R.C. School held its 6th Annual All Saints Day Fair on Friday, November 4, 2011. The celebration started off with a parade through the streets of San Pedro Town leading to the school’s compound where the festive bazaar was held.
It was a family event and children were dressed up as saints and angels. There was lots to eat and drink and plenty of fun games; children and adults enjoyed games of tombola, fishpond, slaying goliath, St. John’s Bosco Bowling and ring toss. There was a disco for the children and they danced the night away under supervision of teachers.
Judging for this year was done different as there were prizes for the top three costumes in lower, middle/upper division students. The following are these year’s winners and their prizes:
St. Michael The Archangel - Luis Isariel Muñoz - Round Trip to Corozal (Tropic Air)

The fundraiser was a total success as a total of $8,102.75 was raised for the reconstruction of the much needed shade/building for the school ground. Work on the new building will commence as soon as possible so that students can enjoy break time and other activities under the newly built shade.
Much thanks to all those who participated in the competition, parents, students, all who attended the fair, teachers/staff, judges and especially all businesses who donated prizes for this year’s fair.
