Rich performances at PCC's Culture-bration

The Old Harbour campus of the Portmore Community College (PCC) was buzzing with excitement and culture-rich performances during the school's Culture-bration event recently.

Both the young and old contributed to the event in song, dance, poetry, and drumming. The Portmore Community College drummers gave the fair-sized crowd a treat and they were well received. Picking up on the pace set by the drummers, was John, who did a poem called 'One more night at the street light', which speaks of the plight of a homeless man.

PCC dancers,JCDC gold awardees in Praise and Modern Comtemporary dances, got down to a ChristinaAguilerasong, which was a sheer delight for the crowd. Also giving a good account of themselves was the PCC drama group, which did'A game within a game'. Even though this piece was filled with laughter and fun, the true story behind the play was for citizens to respect and work with the police. Guest performer Michaella Reid did a good rendition of Tracy Chapman's Sorry.

Two persons were lucky recipients of scholarships from the PCC. They areAmora Pencil, to do a course in bar operations, hospitality and tourism management and Chavan Nelson, to do Events Management

This was the institution's second staging of the event in a week as at PortmoreAmphitheater,a week earlier, they hosted a wholesome entertainment package fit for the entire family to enjoy.

The college opened its doors for classes on January 5, 1992, with 38 students, along with its first principal, Shirley Whylie. There were three teachers, two administrative staff, and one ancillary worker. The official opening was on February 6, 1992, by former prime minister, the late Michael Manley. Karen Kennedy is the current principal.
