Hillview College celebrates Carnival in style

By STEPHON NICHOLAS Saturday, March 22 2014

It was a grand affair at Hillview College recently as the school held their annual Carnival celebrations on February 28 at the compound. Apart from the fun, cash prizes were also awarded to the winners of the various competitions including Original Calypso, Humorous Calypso, Most Promising Calypsonian, Know Your Icon and Engine Room competitions.

Also, it is the first time in the history of Hillview that the Canboulay Riots were reenacted. In addition, the students of Form One portrayed traditional Carnival characters with their own band of Midnight Robbers, Dame Lorrines, jab molassie, sailors, fancy Indians, and moko jumbies. And to cap off the celebrations, soca artiste JoJo (Joanna Hutton) made a guest appearance to sing her 2014 hit “Shake That.”

Estevan Ollivierra blew away his rivals in the Know Your Icon competition with a sterling rendition of Machel Montano’s “Happiest Man Alive”. Backed up by an energetic group of dancers, Estevan demonstrated his vocal skills as well as his prowess on the piano for which he received vociferous applause. Coming in second was Michael Benacia while Randy Jacob, Stefan Horrel and Shaquille Salick tied for third.

Meanwhile Johan Richards was crowned king of Original Calypso with his rendition of “The Remedy.” Rounding out the top three were Christon Joseph and Jonathan Jacobs who placed second and third respectively. Ken Holder took home two prizes for his song “Gideon,” winning the Most Humorous Calypso competition while also being named Most Promising Calypsonian.

A Carnival would be incomplete without the infectious music from a rhythm section and Hillview did not leave out this staple. Winning the Engine Room Competition was the Lower VI Form while Form IV placed second. The Upper VI unit placed third.

The Canboulay Riots reenactment was written and directed by Roshni Tewarie-Mohan and Kurtis Gross. The Musical Director was Everald Watson with Rondel Benjamin of the Bois Academy as the consultant for the production. The production was mounted by the Form Two year group as part of their Theatre Arts programme for the term. The students designed the set themselves and made the tamboo bamboo instruments.
