Old Boys Day
The reintroduction of Old Boys Day saw many "Old" Old Boys and some "Not so" Old Boys taking the time out from their busy schedule to visit the school on Monday 21st September and deliver inspiration speeches to the students. This day also marked the 107th anniversary of the school. This event was indeed a success and we look forward to its continuity in the future.
We thank all who attended and we look forward to a greater participation from the alumi in the future.
Reintroduction of Old Boys Day
The school is reintroducing this activity in an attempt to have a greater level of interaction between the present students and our illustrious past students. We believe that our students can gain inspiration and motivation from your wisdom and experience.
The format for this year activity is simple. We are inviting past students to come to the school and make short (maximum of 30 minutes) motivational talks/presentations/speeches to students in their classrooms. We kindly request that the topics of your presentations be relevant and appropriate to the students level of maturity/development.
The following is a breakdown of the classes and average ages of the students:
Form 1 – 10 to 12
Form 2 – 12+ to 13
Form 3 – 13+ to 14
Form 4 – 14+ to 15
Form 5 – 15+ to 16
Past students of the school are therefore invited to visit the school on Monday 21st September, 2015 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to meet and speak to the students.
