Savannah

Another school fight video goes viral

The video of a school fight has surfaced on social media, this time allegedly between female students of a St Augustine school.

In the video, the students were seen shoving, slapping and punching each other, while their classmates scream in excitement.

This all took place in a hallway of the school.

The fight appears to have continued outside the school compound, as another video shows the students fighting in a savannah. However, the physical row is quelled by an adult, as the rest of the school students look on from higher ground.

75 mas bands to cross Savannah stage

A total of 75 small, medium and large bands have registered with the National Carnival Commission (NCC) to cross the Queen’s Park Savannah stage for the Parade of the Bands on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.

Confirmation came from an NCC source who has been putting preparations in place for the two-day street parade. The spokesman said masqueraders will have access to six routes.

The colour-coded routes outlined in an NCC 2018 Carnival map which the T&T Guardian obtained have been listed as Band, Socadrome, Piccadilly, Exit, Emergency and Escape.

Small turnout but pan fans happy with change in format

Pan Trinbago's decision to separate small steel bands from medium and large bands for this year's National Panorama Semi-Finals has been warmly received by pan enthusiasts at the Queen's Park Savannah.

Of the dozens of attendees who spoke to the T&T Guardian yesterday afternoon, only a handful objected to the change in format, which saw small bands competing on Saturday afternoon as opposed to Sunday with their larger counterparts.

The change in format noticeably improved the efficiency of the show with the 14 medium bands crossing the stage well before 6 pm.
