Choka Fest offers taste of Middle East

Thursday, April 26, 2018

ASJA Boys’ College, San Fernando, in conjunction with its’ Parent Teacher Association, will be hosting their 14th Annual Choka Fest at the school on Saturday, April 28, at 4 pm.

PTA president Selvon Ramroop said, “This year, our themed event will take you on a Taste of the Middle East where you can enjoy the savoury dishes as well as tempting Arabian desserts like the Basbousa, while sitting in a transformed setting.”

A group of dedicated and committed parents, who constitute the PTA, takes the time from their busy schedules to support the teachers and the school’s administration led by principal Alim Ali.

Ramroop said, “This is the flagship fundraising venture of the PTA and proceeds are used to assist the school in pursuing and acquiring additional resources aimed at ensuring the development of the school.”

As one of the school’s major fund-raising events, Choka Fest was introduced in 2004 by Ramroop. It consists of a variety of vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian dishes such as aloo,  tomatoes, bhaigan, eddoes, dasheen bhagi, salt fish buljol and the ever popular fish choka prepared in various culinary styles.

Over the years, the Choka Fest has evolved by adding a variety of desserts to choose from, an enhanced ambience where one can sit and enjoy their meal while being entertained by live entertainment or simply enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in a friendly atmosphere.

Ramroop extended thanks to the sponsors who over the yearshave continued to support Choka Fest and other events at ASJA Boys’ College.
