Joshua Obadiah Folklore Troupe Gives Thank You Performance To Fraites Bakery
Basseterre, St. Kitts, January 22 2021 (ZIZ News) On Thursday, Students from the Joshua Obadiah Primary School who are part of their David and Goliath Folklore troupe staged a thank you performance at Molyneux Primary School for Fraites and Sons Enterprises who sponsored the troupe.
Head Teacher at Joshua Obadiah Primary, Suzette Cannonier explained that her school lacked a cultural group so she solicited the help of Cultural Preservationist, Winston “Zack” Nisbett in the formation of the troupe.
Nisbett said he approached Fraites and Sons Enterprises to help provide funding for the troupe and they were more than willing to help.
The students donned costumes that they were provided by Fraites and played instruments to tell the story of David and Goliath.
Manager of Fraites and Sons, Jeffery Fraites said he was pleased with the students’ performance and commended Mr. Nisbett for the work he has done with the students.
He said persons in the community need to embrace the youth folklore troupes more in an effort to preserve the culture instead of only focusing on the big bands and troupes.
