It was a fierce battle which gave adjudicators a torrid time in determining who was going to be crowned the champions in a competition which display high quality music standards.
St Dominic’s gave an outstanding performance much to the applause of revellers present joining ranks with highly ranked girls’ high schools like Regina Mundi.
St Francis of Assisi which has also created a great singing culture within their ranks were announced as runners up.
Speaking at the end of the competitions Chaplain of St Ignatius College, Fr Ignatius Padya SJ said that its really encouraging to see Catholic school children gathered to praise God through song.’
“I am very much satisfied with the level of singing and just like what St Augustine said, in singing we pray twice, the young people have lived up to that quote” said Fr Padya SJ.
