Al­ca­tel’s PIXI, POP and IDOL dial in on St Ann’s Bay Pri­mary

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

APART FROM adding more glam­our to the Chill Room, the Al­ca­tel ladies (PIXI, POP and IDOL) pro­vided a new di­men­sion to this year’s Dig­i­cel Ris­ing Stars show by trav­el­ling to dif­fer­ent parts of the is­land, get­ting feed­back about Al­ca­tel and the show, as well as in­ter­act­ing with view­ers who have been ea­ger to meet them.

Al­though th­ese ex­cur­sions were ex­cit­ing, it was the most re­cent visit to St Ann’s Bay Pri­mary that the ladies said was most ful­fill­ing.

“It has been a fun ride ... Watch­ing th­ese awe­some kids em­brace us the way they did was a very heart-warm­ing feel­ing,” said POP, who, in­ci­den­tally, is also from St Ann.

The ladies and other mem­bers of the Al­ca­tel team stopped by the school on their way to film an­other episode of their Street Vibe seg­ment but did not go empty-handed as they is­sued bags, pen­cils and note­books to the stu­dents and ‘selfie’ sticks and other good­ies to the teach­ers.

“The school was well kept. The stu­dents were very pleas­ant and ex­tremely bright,” ac­cord­ing to PIXI. “It was amaz­ing to me how dis­ci­plined they were and it re­ally seems as if they were all happy to be in school.”

Mr Cole, prin­ci­pal of St Ann’s Bay Pri­mary, said he was very grate­ful for the visit and ex­tended his ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the items given by Al­ca­tel to the stu­dents, which he said would come in very handy with their stud­ies.

MO­TI­VA­TIONAL MES­SAGES

“It’s al­ways great to have vis­i­tors. It helps to mo­ti­vate the stu­dents, who feel a sense of pride know­ing that they met some­one they see on TV, so I am very happy for the visit,” said Cole.

The visit ended with the Al­ca­tel ladies chat­ting with teach­ers and stu­dents. They im­parted mo­ti­va­tional mes­sages about the im­por­tance of school and why they should fol­low their dreams.

“It starts from here,” said IDOL.

“As a brand, we be­lieve in in­spir­ing peo­ple to fol­low their dreams, and we are very ex­cited to be able to mo­ti­vate and share with th­ese young minds. Af­ter all, they are the fu­ture lead­ers of our coun­try,” she con­tin­ued.
