With plans moving a pace for Guyana to take the spotlight to celebrate the nation’s 50th Republican status the Ministry of Education is assuring that a much larger presence for Mashramani 2020 Costume and Float Parade.
To make this a reality, the planning committee headed by Permanent Secretary Mr. Alfred King has commenced meeting, planning and strategizing the way forward to up the ante while increasing its numbers and competitive creativity when the band takes to the Parade route.
Already the planning committee has confirmed that the Ministry will be moving from its usual small contingent participation to enter the medium band category.
One Senior Education institution has committed to an additional 100 strong that will be added to the usual numbers. Expressions of interests for various stakeholders including designers and service providers are already out.
The ideas are centred on Dr. The Hon Nicolette Henry’s vision for the Ministry’s participation which is in keeping with the vision of His Excellency President David Granger’s to promote the Decade of the Development of a petroleum State, an Education nation, as a Green State and a digital state.
Additionally through the Allied Arts Unit headed by Director Ms Lorraine Barker King, has commenced planning for the Regional and National Children’s Mashramani Competitions and the ultimate Costume parade.
