Subsequently to the meet, it was bantered around that Green House was also destined to win the CSS House Pageant as it did last year.
As time draws nigh the excitement is on and all contestants are confident that they would do extremely well on the night of the pageant, which is scheduled to take place at the Nevis Cultural Complex.
