Congratulations Titchfield High!
THE EDITOR, Sir:
As you can imagine all of Port Antonio, and, indeed, all Portlanders are still celebrating the victory of Titchfield High School in the recently-concluded 2015-2016 Schools' Challenge Quiz competition. The grit and confidence that exude from the students was extra-ordinary and exemplary. It was not purely knowledge and preparation but also the cohesiveness of the team that secured their victory.
One of the marks of a true champion is how one conducts oneself in victory, and despite the challenges leading to said victory. In this regard, the champion students of Titchfield have demonstrated a maturity and level-headedness that is beyond their years, and very admirable in the eyes of all well-thinking onlookers. They set an excellent example for the younger students of their school and indeed all Jamaicans.
Congratulations to these leaders of the future, and also to coaches Alpha Sparks and Chase Roberts. To the Titchfield High School community in general, and the 2015-2016 Schools' Challenge Quiz champions in particular, I wish to say, congratulations on your well-deserved victory! May your triumph ring through the history of your school.
All of Portland are proud of you!
Andrea R. N. Moore
