    Alex Abwabu, the Head teacher of Baptist Preparatory School in Nairobi concurs with the Ministry of Education by encouraging students to
    participate in the event.

    “We give our students a chance to participate in the music festivals because it is part of the new curriculum. Students also utilize their talents through song, dance and recitation of choral and solo verses,” says Teacher Alex
