Students from Stella Maris Primary Boarding School, St. Alphonsus Demonstration School, where many CARITAS supporters sponsor a child, and St. Paul all presented songs, skits, and debates to be judged.

Some presentations were in English and others in Luganda. Most discussed religious themes and values. This competition is an annual event and each school generally prepares multiple presentations.
