Moruga Mania Part II- Moruga RC Primary School

Moruga RC 9I was invited to be the guest speaker at Moruga RC Primary School graduation. This is the first time I have had such an opportunity, and though I appreciate that it was a special day for the graduates, it was also a day that I would never forget.

The Principal, Mrs. Sharon Palloo and I have been communicating since I introduced her to Selima and the Merfolk. She loved the book, hence her invitation. To flatter me further she themed the graduation about the book (‘Dream higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean’).

Brand Manager of Mario’s Pizzeria Limited, Ms. Bajnath accompanied me to the graduation. Mario’s donated copies of Selima and the Merfolk to the school library and gave all the graduates pizza vouchers.

I was very nervous to read my speech, but I kept with my process that is writing honestly and from the heart. After the graduation, several distinguished guests and parents congratulated me so I guess I did a good job. I expected a much smaller crowd, not that it would have made a difference to my nerves. It was pleasing to witness that the school is supported by neighbouring and out of district principals and several heads of affiliated educational bodies (i.e. TTUTA, Catholic Educational Board of Management and Ministry of Education).

My greatest and most pleasant surprise was learning that Moruga RC is a very accomplished school. Most schools have trophies but not every school can call themselves the current national champions in both cricket and football and have the female recipient of the Primary School Cricketer of the Year, Ms. Jayriel Charles.

The following is a list of their many accomplishments from the year ending 2013 to the most current.
