NSSM History

CARIBBEAN PRESTIGE FOUNDATON (CPF) FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION THAT FACILITATES THE PRODUCTION OF THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS’ SOCA MONARCH (NSSM) COMPETITION. WE PARTNER WITH THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION TO POSITIVELY CONTRIBUTE TO THE CULTURAL, SOCIAL AND HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHILDREN OF TRINIDAD & TOBAGO THROUGH THE PERFORMING ARTS.
NSSM CAME ABOUT IN 1997 AND IS A CPF INITIATIVE INTENDED TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND ENCOURAGING AVENUE FOR CHILDREN TO EXPLORE AND REFINE THEIR UNDEVELOPED TALENT. THE MAIN OBJECTIVES ARE:

  • TO CREATE A NURSING GROUND FOR YOUNG TALENT
  • TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES REGARDLESS OF GEOGRAPGIC LOCATION
  • TO HAVE SOCA REPRESENTED FOR THE FUTURE BY STARTING FROM SCHOOL AGE
