Comments from the house mistress of Our Lady of Fatima: “We are grateful to WDDC for organizing this programme. It really was educative and fun at the same time and we plan on keeping our position all the time. Thank you”

The house mistress of the last house had this to say about the results; She said the judgment was fair. She also said that she was disappointed in the performance of her own house, so she promised that they would come 1st next time.

Meanwhile, the organizers of the WDDC drama competition want to make this programme national. They also said they were facing some financial problems, therefore appealed to Old Girls and others such as teachers, parents, the media and any interested person to help sponsor them to make the programme a national programme by bringing so many schools on board.
