On Wednesday, May 11, 2011, all the schools of San Pedro Town (Isla Bonita Elementary, San Pedro Roman Catholic School, New Horizon SDA School, Holy Cross Anglican School, Ambergris Caye Elementary and St. Peter’s Elementary) gathered at the Rafael Angel Nuñez Auditorium to showcase their best talents in front of the judges of the Belize District Festival of Arts. The festival featured skits, singing, poem recitals, dancing and more.

The auditorium was alive as all schools cheered for their students as they competed against each other to win either a silver or gold title, but most importantly to perform and entertain. Many parents were amazed and wowed as they saw their children express themselves in an educational and talented competition.
