In what turned out to be the event of the year on the TCI’s largest yet most sparsely populated island, Middle Caicos, the Doris Robinson School attracted a capacity crowd on Friday, who were entertained by the students and staff of the territory’s now smallest public school in a show that both entertained and stunned the crowd with the abilities of the students and the school's staff. This was the school’s third annual concert and play.

From the opening prayer by Pastor Evan Williams to the benediction by new Pastor Iona Harvey, the audience who participated in congregational gospel hymns was entertained with the songs and the play the school presented.

Beginning with “This Little Light of Mine”, which illustrated that the Doris Robinson School was “making us (the students) shine”, the young children put on quite a show. Folk songs and instrumental duets, which included 16 selections, were moderated by mistress of ceremonies Yvette Tapfer.

The topical play, written by teacher Brenda Lee Harvey-Oladimeji, reflected the challenges of TCI today, when the student actors presented a school bully converted to accept Christ. The short play was so well received by the audience that it was repeated near the program’s end.

The audience, which comprised residents from Middle and North Caicos, included opposition leader Sharlene Cartwright Robinson and her family from Provo, who heard the soaring voice of principal Kiesha Mills lead the school staff in “Wings of a Dove” and later “Lean on Me”

The kindergarten thru grade three children had fun with “London Bridge is falling down”, complete with a Kazoo ending.

Grades 4 through 6 gave out the “answer my friends is ...Blowing in the Wind” and later closed with a baritone ukulele instrumental “Vaya Con Dios” (May God go with You). Near the end the student body performed ...traveling along, “Side by Side”.
