Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : December 4th 2015 Contents Patrons are extremely loyal, and many have attended each
fete from its inception in 1995. Some parents have passed
the baton on to their children, making sure that they
too became loyal patrons of the "Bishops Fete."
The fete has become, and remains, the principal
fund-raiser for the school.
Over the years, proceeds from this event have
assisted with funding capital-intensiveprojects
at the school, ensuring that the education
exprience continues to be one that current and
former students of the school all know and
love. This year tickets cost $900 and are avail-
able now from committee members Tonya
(344-2334); Debbie (681-2531); and Wanda
(478-0035). For those in East and South
Trinidad, contact Janine (278-4220). Email
