The Andrean All- Bandra Talent Contest 2013 was held on August 18, 25, 31 and September 1. St. Anne’s joined St. Vincent de Paul and a part of St. Andrew parish to form the North West Zone (NWZ).

LIVE 8 was the theme for this year’s Poster Competition. Participants had to reflect the ‘live’ participation of the 8 parishes, showcasing their talent on a common platform in healthy competition. ELOCUTION was an add-on to the Zonals this year and brought many an orator to the fore.

DAY 1: Our NWZ choir dressed in a touch of hot pink had a fun time with Hot Chocolate. At the end of the day we bagged our first trophy The Very Rev. Hilary Rodrigues Trophy for the best Vocal Harmony – duets in below 14!

DAY 2: Musical talent from the older folk won them The Furtado’s Challenge Trophy for the best Vocal Harmony – Quartets. Our dance moves won the hearts of the audience and three trophies were awarded to NWZ:  The Very Rev. Msgr. Henry Remedios Challenge Shield for the best Dance Duo in below 10 category, The Very Rev. Jonathan Dias Challenge Shield for the best Dance Group in below 10 category & The St. Andrew’s Parish Zonal Talent Contest Trophy for Dance Duo above 16.

The final weekend had a dramatic finish with a fine performance from our parishioner, Lynn D’Lima.  A Holiday Abroad our NWZ play won the 2nd place.  Thus NWZ ended the Zonals with an overall win of 2nd Place.

Michele Lawrence, our dynamic Co-ordinator on the Zonals Committee and Co-Captain with Alison Rosario (Vincent de Paul parish) received two trophies for  NWZ – The May & Melville Rodricks Star Trophy for the zone with the maximum number of winners & The Very Rev. Msgr. Nereus Rodrigues Shield for the Musical Zone.

Congratulations to all participants of NWZ who made this win possible!

We look forward to a greater display of talent from St. Anne’s as you get ready and save these dates for ZONALS 2014 – August 17, 24, 31 & September 6, 7.
